3. Help Each Other

This requirement is that Mikraites help each other within reason.  This also clearly implies that we don't harm each other.  And clearly this includes obeying the 6th, 7th, 8th, and 9th commandments as well as other rules in the Old Testament against harming other members of one's community.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
“You must not harbor hatred against your brother. Rebuke your neighbor directly, and you will not incur guilt because of him. Do not take revenge or bear a grudge against members of your community, but love your neighbor as yourself; I am Yahweh.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Leviticus 19:17-18

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
“If you come across your enemy’s stray ox or donkey, you must return it to him.

“If you see the donkey of someone who hates you lying helpless under its load, and you want to refrain from helping it, you must help with it.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Exodus 23:4-5

To a large degree, helping each other is the point of religion.  All successful religions encourage members to cooperate, even if they may not like each other.  For Mikraites, this is a core value and we practice it in business where we cooperate.  We run several internet businesses together.
