Obligation to Coexistence
The rabbis saw the commandment to pursue peace as uniquely important within the pantheon of Jewish values. The Sages taught, “The Law does not order you to run after or pursue the other commandments, but only to fulfill them on the appropriate occasion. But peace you must seek in your place and pursue it even to another place as well” (Jerusalem Talmud, Pe’ah 1:1 [4a]). Corporations have a unique role to play in fostering coexistence in the many areas around the world where conflict exists among people.
