Love Your Neighbor

Rabbi Shai Held

There is no better known verse than Leviticus 19:18, "You shall love your neighbor as yourself." Even Rabbi Akiva, one of the great sages of the Jewish tradition, says that it is the great principle of the Torah. However, it is actually very difficult to translate and each word is problematic in its own way. Shai Held investigates the meaning of this central verse. This was recorded at the Summer Kickoff in 2013.
