Positive Mitzvah 

60

Love every Jew as oneself

 

 “Love your fellow as yourself” Vayikra 19:18

This is a fundamental principal of the Torah ref Rashi

Its required to care for your friend’s physical needs, his possessions and honour as for yourself.

He who receives honour from disgracing his friend has no portion in the world to come.

Included in this mitzvah is making peace between a man and his friend.

 

The Sage Hillel summed up the entire Torah as follows “that which is hateful to you, do not do to your fellow - all the rest is elaboration’ Talmud Shabbos 31a

 

This applies everywhere at all times for men and women.
