Leviticus 19:16: Do not stand idly while your neighbor bleeds. 

Talmud Sanhedrin 73a on Leviticus 19:16: If one sees someone in a life-threatening situation (e.g. he is drowning in a river or being dragged by wild beasts), he has an obligation to save him.

Deuteronomy 16:20: Justice, justice shall you pursue, that you may live.

Deuteronomy 22:3: You must not remain indifferent. 

 

Nafshenu recognizes that the world is a changing place and to be indifferent to these changes would be to forsake our tradition, both Biblically and Rabbinically. Each individual has an obligation to do acts of Tikkun Olam, repair of the world. We will not be indifferent and will be involved and engaged in making this world a better place, responding to the issues of the day. Judaism has been, and will always be, relevant to the world in which we live.
