Stronger Together

Join the conversation! We would love to hear your wisdom and your voices.These are supplemental questions to continue the conversation started in Pirkei Imahot. This time the question is from our study of Pirkei Avot 4:10.

This was a favorite teaching of his [Rabbi Yishmael]:
Do not render decisions alone; there is but One who judges alone.
Never say to your colleagues: “You must adopt my view”;
the prerogative is theirs, not yours to coerce.

Rabbi Posen responded to this teaching:

Simply put, we are better together. We are better individuals when we listen to each other and strengthen one another.

What are your thoughts on this? How does engaging others play a role in your daily living?
