|Welcome to the World of Rabbi Riddle.
Law and Order!
The Ten Commandments were given at Mount Sinai. However, G-d gave us many other commandments as well. Some are called Mishpatim or "judgments." These laws help us to create a just society. Here are a few:
- If a person's ox falls into a pit, the person who dug the pit is responsible for any damages.
- A person who steals an object must return it and pay double its value to the owner.
- The Jewish people must loan money to each other without charging interest.
Rabbi Riddle's Kwazy Kwestions:
- According to Judaism, one must obey the laws of the land, including traffic laws. Yet there is one driver who never gets a speeding ticket. What kind of driver is it?
- A screwdriver!
