Suggested Discussion Questions:
1. Rabbi Emden, who lived at the beginning of the movement for Jewish Emancipation in Europe, drew a distinction between the Jew who is an adam chashuv and ordinary Jews. In a democracy which gives Jews full suffrage, is every Jew an adam chashuv?
2. Who are we obligated to rescue from oppression?
3. What is the nature of this obligation? Must we seek out the oppressed, or only rescue them when confronted directly?
