SHABBAT READING
 
Collective Responsibility:  VAYISHLACH • 57715784, Rabbi Jonathan Sacks, The Rabbi Sacks Legacy  By any standards it was a shocking episode. Jacob had settled on the outskirts of the town of Shechem, ruled by Hamor. Dina, Jacob’s daughter, goes out to see the town. Shechem, Hamor’s son, sees her, abducts and rapes her, and then falls in love with her and wants to marry her. He begs his father, “Take this girl as a wife for me” (Gen. 34:4).
