The Complicity Of The Collective


JewishPress Logo

By failing to fulfill this obligation, an individual and even a nation can be complicit in crimes they themselves didn’t perpetrate. This theme is present throughout Tanach as entire nations, not just their kings or governments, are often condemned for their wrongdoing.

In Parshat Shemot, the Torah therefore condemns all of Egypt, saying it was “they” who oppressed the Jews, not just Pharaoh or his advisors.
