The world is sustained by three things:
By justice, by truth, and by peace.
—Rabban Shimon ben Gamliel
Rabban Shimon ben Gamliel was the grandson of his namesake, author of the previous mishnah, and father of Judah HaNasi, who compiled this book and the whole Mishnah. The traditional way to reconcile this saying and that of Shimon the Righteous (1:2) is to say that the first one speaks of the purposes for which God created the world, whereas this one speaks of the principles which sustain it, and prevent it from collapsing.The three values can be seen to promote the welfare of mankind on two levels: the interpersonal and the social.
Justice. On the social level, a fair government (as Maimonides points out) and courts that actually administer justice promote peace and harmony in society. On a personal level, a major mistake of 20th century psychology has been to neglect the importance of justice in the sense of fairness in relationships. It is the glue that sustains good relationships.
Truth. In the Biblical context, ‘truth’ refers not simply to the accuracy of statements, but also to the moral dimension of truth-telling: honesty, keeping promises and avoiding deceit. On the interpersonal level, truth is essential for trust and effective cooperation, and lies destroy relationships from within. For example, experts who have studied the damage that infidelity does to marriages say that the lying does as much or more damage as the sexual betrayal. On the level of a whole society the ability of citizens to know the actual social consequences of governmental policies, and for the citizen's views to feed back and change policy greatly help to promote peace and prosperity, as philosopher Karl Popper pointed out. Democratic governments, which allow a free press, debate, and voting to change leaders, all increase the power of truth to change society for the better.
Peace. Strife and war are obviously destructive of society. We have just seen also that justice and truth are important to sustaining peace. However, sometimes these values come into conflict with sustaining peace, and there are very interesting discussions of these conflicts in the Talmud.
Justice vs Peace. When parties are in dispute, peace between them may be served by a settlement that both sides can agree on, rather than strict justice, which even though correct, leaves one party feeling injured and angry. In Sanhedrin 6b the Rabbis debate when mediation and compromise is appropriate, and when a legal judgment is called for. Rabbi Eliezer, son of Rabbi Josse the Galilean argues that mediation should be forbidden, because justice should always rule. In a memorable phrase he said, “Let justice pierce through the mountain”—meaning strict justice whatever the obstacle or cost. Rabbi Judah ben Korba takes the opposite side. Refering to the same proof text as Rabban Shimon ben Gamiliel here, he argues that where people turn to law courts there is no peace, and where there is peace people don’t turn to law courts. “What is that kind of justice in which peace abides? We must say: mediation.” The report of the debate identifies the ‘pierce the mountain’ view with Moses, and the priority on peace with his brother Aaron. The decision is that offering mediation as an alternative to court is always meritorious. But there is unresolved disagreement over at what point to stop offering mediation.
Truth and Peace. Sometimes the truth can offend and set people against each other. The Talmud identifies particularly two areas in which truth can be compromised. One of these is the shading of the truth for the sake of good manners. The question is asked, “How does one dance [and sing] before the bride? The school of Shammai says: the bride as she is. The school of Hillel says: ‘Beautiful and graceful bride.’” The school of Hillel maintained against the arguments of the school of Shammai that this is proper even if the bride is lame or blind, and inspite of the Torah passage that says “Keep far from false words” (Ex. 23:7). Thus the sages concluded “One should always try to get along well with people.”(Ket. 17a). A second area is for the sake of peace in the Home. When God tells Sarah that she will bear a child with Abraham, she laughs, saying “And my lord is old.” But God then reports Sarah’s words to Abraham as “Now that I am old”(Gen. 18:12-13), which will not offend Abraham. Thus the sages conclude that the truth can also be shaded for the sake of family peace.
By justice, by truth, and by peace.
—Rabban Shimon ben Gamliel
Discussion Guide [1:18].
Can you give some examples where goverments around the world have attempted to supress truth? What have been the results?
How would you distinguish those distortions of the truth which will properly promote harmony within the family from those which are damaging to relationships?
Is there a rule or guideline for distinguishing the two?
In relationships, communication usually has broken down by the time the parties go to court. Contemporary thinkers such as Roger Fisher, have recently made important contributions to the art of conflict resulution through negotiation and third-party mediation.
What attitudes do you think lead to break down in negotiations, or helps negotiations succeed?
Do you think our legal system does enough to encourage a mediated settlement, rather than a court decision?
Have you ever acted as a mediator or witnessed mediation?
In your experience in a family, when do you think discussions about the fair resolution of a dispute have the best chance of succeeding?

Read Below how SHLOMO MANDEL doesn't give a damn about saving Jewish Lives. He only cares about his KOVOD.
The Responsibility of Every Single Jew to Participate in the Campaign to
"Stop Funding the Terrorist PLO!"
It is our duty to inform every Jew of the following Torah principles:
- Every Jew, regardless of age or position, has an obligation under Jewish law to save the life of a fellow Jew whose life is in danger (the obligation of ).
- This obligation "pushes aside the entire Torah" (), meaning that it overrides, if necessary, the observance of virtually any other part of Jewish law — even Shabbos, Yom Kippur, or the like ().
- When the time comes to save a life (or lives), a Jew is absolutely forbidden to ask permission to do so, even from a Rav or any other authority; Jewish law states that by asking for authorization, a Jew would be wasting precious time and effort that is needed for the saving of lives, and would be giving others the false impression that saving lives might be optional, or that someone may have the authority to override this obligation.
- The Table of Jewish Law () states that any rabbi who is asked by a member of his community for permission to save lives is considered shamed and disgraced (), since he previously failed to teach clearly that they must not ask his permission in such a case.
- Indeed, Jewish law requires the rabbi to precede his entire congregation in rushing forward to save lives, so as to provide a proper example to others ().
- A Jew who fulfills his duty to save a life is considered as if he has saved the entire world.
- One who fails to carry out his responsibility is considered by Torah as if he actually participated in the murder of his fellow Jews.
- One who sees his fellow Jews not carrying out their responsibility of saving lives must speak out and pressure those Jews to do their duty; if another person, despite knowing his responsibility, still refuses to act, "we shame him publicly, publicize his (ongoing) sin, reproach him to his face, and despise and curse him, until he will return to what is proper" (), if this is the only way to make him take proper action.
- One who discourages his fellow Jews from saving lives, or who even fails to speak out to force them to take action, is considered one who causes the masses to sin; he loses his place in the World to Come (), and is hindered — or even blocked altogether, if his terrible sin persists — from doing teshuvah (repentance and return) for his heinous act of betrayal ().
- Various authorities, including the Lubavitcher Rebbe, have unequivocally applied the principle of saving lives to the current situation in Israel, in which Jews are being forced to surrender in stages to our enemies — especially to the Marxist, terrorist Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO) and various affiliated groups (); these terrorists continue to make clear their objective of utterly destroying the nation of Israel and murdering all its citizens ().
- The organization "Jews And Hasidic Gentiles — United to Save America" (JAHG-USA) has spearheaded a campaign to terminate U.S. government funding for the PLO and its various front organizations, financing which amounts to hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars each year, and which may well be the primary funding source for the terrorists, without which their operations would cease and uncountable Jewish lives would be saved.
- Therefore, we the undersigned endorse the materials produced by JAHG-USA for this PLO-defunding campaign, including the petition "An Urgent Call to Stop Funding the Terrorist PLO!", the flier "Is America Ready for Judgment Day?", and the book A Brilliant Disguise: How Israel's Enemies Have Concealed their True Identity and Fatal Weakness; these materials should be used by every single Jew in America in an emergency campaign to save Jewish lives — which is obligatory for all Jews.
- The efforts to neutralize Israel's enemies should not be limited to the above, but should also include any other productive efforts leading to the destruction of the PLO and its allies and sponsors.
THE HALL OF SHAME…
Have Some Jewish Leaders Betrayed the Torah?
This week's example:
Rabbi Shlomo Mandel, Dean, Yeshiva & Mesivta of Brooklyn, Brooklyn, NY
A JAHG-USA volunteer showed Rabbi Mandel our PLO-defunding Proclamation last September 29th. He excused himself from signing by saying he doesn't sign such things (presumably meaning proclamations?) — but then bluntly admitted he would sign the Proclamation if other prominent rabbis in Brooklyn would do so.
In other words, the rabbi implicitly acknowledged there was absolutely nothing wrong with the Proclamation itself, insofar as he would theoretically be willing to sign it. He thus also agreed, in effect, that he would be an appropriate leader to endorse the Proclamation. So what was his problem? He didn't want to stand out alone on the issue; he would only participate if everyone, absolutely everyone else, were also doing so. By no means did he want to risk being the slightest bit controversial with anyone.
Since Rabbi Mandel's refusal, we have received the endorsements of several leading rabbis in Flatbush, one of the Brooklyn areas from which he wanted to see others sign; in fact, JAHG-USA's campaign was endorsed by virtually all the directors of the Vaad HaRabonim, the official rabbinical council for Flatbush.
Rabbi Mandel is the head of a major (non-Hasidic) yeshiva in Brooklyn, and he has much potential influence, for better or for worse. It is truly astonishing that, these days, leaders are more afraid to speak out on what they know is right (as Rabbi Mandel essentially acknowledged regarding our Proclamation) than are people of "lower" status. But soon people like Rabbi Mandel may find themselves utterly isolated from the Jewish community for having waited until almost everyone else has endorsed the PLO-defunding campaign.
THE HALL OF SHAME…
Have Some Jewish Leaders Betrayed the Torah?
This week's example:
Rabbi Yisroel Pichey, Yeshiva & Mesivta of Brooklyn, Brooklyn, NY
A couple of weeks ago, we profiled the "refusenik" Rabbi Shlomo Mandel, Dean of the orthodox (though non-Hasidic) Yeshiva & Mesivta of Brooklyn, a prominent school for Jewish boys. He refused to sign the PLO-defunding Proclamation, even while essentially admitting there was nothing wrong with the document, unless he could hide behind other prominent rabbis who would sign first.
On that same visit to the yeshiva (last September 29th), the JAHG-USA volunteer first went to Rabbi Pichey, one of the yeshiva's teachers working under Rabbi Mandel. Since his boss hadn't yet been approached and hadn't yet refused, Rabbi Pichey didn't have any basis to fear speaking out. But there seems to be a general atmosphere of cowardice, so he started making various evasive excuses not to sign (none of which rejected the content of the Proclamation itself). Upon our volunteer's persistence, Rabbi Pichey took the Proclamation over to a fellow teacher to ask what he thought (as if he doesn't have his own mind or conscience!). Then he sent our volunteer to the Dean (Rabbi Mandel, who then refused, as mentioned above); by the time the volunteer returned to ask Rabbi Pichey one last time, the rabbi had conveniently vanished and was not to be found.
"Passing the buck" is a widespread disease, as it turns out. Perhaps someone will develop a vaccine…=================================================
STOP DECEIVING THE PUBLIC - YOU COWARDLY AND DISGUSTING RABBI'S!!!
The nerve of these mafioso rabbi's that lie to your face and expect you to believe the crap they are spewing forth. No thank you! I don't trust the actions and integrity of these old midgets and killers of children, not one bit. Not at all. In fact it's all one big show with these Rabbi's. IT'S A BUSINESS AS USUAL APPROACH. Let's give a hechsher on soap and make a "shabbos doorknob" (don't ask me to explain this). Let's forbid fancy simcha's. They are all busy taking your hard earned money from your pockets while advocating laws LIKE FORBIDDING THE INTERNET SO THAT YOU THE "DUMB" PUBLIC DOESN'T HAVE A CLUE AS TO WHAT KIND OF SCUMBAGS THESE RABBI'S REALLY ARE. THAT YOU THE "NAIVE' PUBLIC SHOULD NOT KNOW THE TRUTH BECAUSE THEN THE MOSDOS WILL BE EXPOSED FOR THEIR CRIMES. The Rabbi's who forbid the internet are afraid of the truth coming out. They are very scared, as they most certainly should be with the crimes they attempted and are attempting to sweep under the rug. Therefore, they tell you that it is forbidden to use the internet unless you first consult with them for approval. This is the game the rabbi's play. They worry about how many donations they will receive from you today. They worry that their holy image will be tainted. They have NO answer to the truth they have been hiding from you all these decades. They have no legs to stand on and they are hoping and wishing that you the "Stupid" Jews will follow their Daas Chamorim and fall for their wicked intentions being disguised in the name of the Torah. Judiasim as we were taught in school is NOT the same Judiasim that G-D intended for us. Certainly, children have earned a publics interest concern and responsibility for their safety and well being.
These rabbi's are holding you hostage and have you where they want YOU. They preach a whole lot, yet do not practice what they preach. They pray and hope that you should never ever find out the many jewish neshamas that were killed by the mosdos and by these phony and evil rabonim. Many times, as we see today, the internet has the special power to EXPOSE these phoney Rabbi's and yeshiva's and alert you the "dumb citizen" of the CHILD MOLESTERS THAT ARE TEACHING YOUR CHILD IN YESHIVAH, THE COVER-UP AND THREATS AND MANIPULATION TO BE SILENT ABOUT IT, the FAKERS, CHEATERS, TAX EVADERS, FOOL A FOOD INSPECTOR FOR THE CITY OF NEW YORK LUNCH MONEY PROGRAM (BOBOV AMONGST OTHER YESHIVA'S), SLY AND UN-REPENTFUL CHILD KILLERS. All of this you the "fool" that the rabbi's think that you are is what WORKS SO WELL FOR THESE RABBI'S FROM HELL, BUT IF YOU THE PUBLIC SMARTEN UP A BIT, YOU CAN SEE RIGHT THROUGH THEIR DECEIT, MANIPULATION OF THE TORAH, AND THEIR BLACK HATS AND UGLY SMELLY BEARDS.
Yeshiva of Brooklyn, Yeshiva Torah Temima, Ger, Bobov, Satmar, Ner Israel of Baltimore, All these yeshiva cases that employed and are employing rabbi's that molest boys, would not have been brought to you the "stupid" publics attention were it not for the great power of the internet and bloggers; that is being used as a means to save JEWISH NESHAMAS!
The internet can be used for good and bad; just like a gun can also be used for protection or for a crime. So PLEASE; I BEG OF YOU THE "STUPID" PUBLIC AS THE RABBI'S SEEM TO ASSUME THAT YOU ARE; TO GET UP AND SHOW THESE WIMPY AND TORAH TWISTING RABBI'S THAT YOU WILL NOT FALL FOR THEIR LIES, DISTORTIONS, AND CRIMES ANYMORE.
Insist that the Rabbi's NOT ignore the pedophile rabbi's epidemic anymore. Tell them that IYOV was punished for being quiet, and so too will they. Explain TO THESE GANGSTER RABBI'S that they Stop robbing the Public of their hard earned money THEY WORKED SO HARD FOR. GO TO HELL RABBI'S; YOU ARE AN UTTER DISGRACE TO HASHEM. YOU HAVE NO VALUES, NO ETHICS, AND NO REAL TORAH THAT YOU ADHERE TO OR STUDY FROM.
PROCEED WITH CAUTION. YOU ARE ABOUT TO READ SOME CRAP FROM OUR "GEDOLIM"
Lakewood Internet Asifa - Update (FROM 2005)
Thousands of people attended the gathering, one of the biggest ever held in Lakewood.
The Rabbis spoke about the great threat posed by the internet to children and the importance of maintaining their purity and innocence by erecting barriers to its use. They cited actual incidents where children were exposed to the most vile and destructive material without the knowledge of their parents and at times despite their parents’ efforts to protect them.
As a result a list of rules will be circulated by the schools to their parent bodies. These will include the following:
1. Internet access in the home is only permissible if required for a person’s job.
2. Internet access in the home is prohibited if it is only for the purpose of casual use (shopping, airline tickets etc.)
3. Anyone who requires access to perform their jobs will be required to have a Rabbi certify the validity of this need. The Rabbi’s certification will be filed with the children’s schools.
4. Computers without internet access will be required to have software installed which will prevent such access in order to prevent children from connecting them to the internet by the use of external modems, WIFI etc.
5. Children of families that do not comply with the rules will be barred from school in order to protect the other children in the class.
It was stressed that the optimal situation for adults as well as children is to totally avoid the need to access the internet whether at work or at home.

Lesson for students at molester's parish
BY AMY DeMELIA SUN CHRONICLE STAFF
NORTH ATTLEBORO - St. Mary-Sacred Heart School is introducing a sex awareness program to safeguard students in the wake of the priest sex abuse scandal, and another to help parents protect their children from predators on the Internet.
"Because of the sex abuse challenge in the Catholic Church, each school in the Catholic diocese has been required to offer a prevention program," said the Rev. David Costa, director of the school. "Our diocese has chosen the Child Lures prevention program."
The program has special relevance for the school because St. Mary's Church was the first parish of Father James Porter, a notorious child molester convicted of molesting dozens of students in the 1960s.
Porter's case in the early 1990s brought the issue of priest sex abuse into the national spotlight.
Beginning this month, students will learn about the tricks a predator might use to lure them away and how to react if approached by a stranger. The program is taught at all grade levels each year with the lessons becoming more intensive as the child ages.
The Child Lures program has six cornerstone lessons that teach students everything from recognizing and following instincts to fostering self-esteem. Students also learn who to tell, and where to go if they are approached by a stranger.
The program also focuses on lures that a predator might use, which are taught on an age-appropriate basis.
"We take a non-alarmist approach. We try to be as non-scary and positive as possible," Costa said. "So far, it's been a success."
As a result, kindergarten students learn that strangers could attempt to lure them away with a pet or by asking for help. Fifth-grade students learn about drug and alcohol lures, which ties in with the school's Drug Abuse Resistance Education program, and eighth-graders learn about pornography lures.
"As designed, we were supposed to do the entire program in every grade, every year," said Denise Peixoto, principal of St. Mary-Sacred Heart School.
"We knew some of our families would be uncomfortable talking about some of the lures with young children, so we split it up into age-appropriate groups."
The school's work with the program has been recognized by the diocese and shared with other Catholic schools in the area.
"We tend to do things here with the needs of our students in mind so when the program was introduced, we made it our own. As a staff we decided what would work for our schools, and now we're being used as a model for other schools," Peixoto said.
Internet safety program
Child safety has long been a concern at the school, which also is putting on a program on Internet safety for its parents this month.
North Attleboro police Detective John Reilly will host a presentation for parents on Tuesday that will talk about the importance of keeping an eye on children when they access the Internet.
After the presentation, parents will be able to sign up for workshops hosted by Lorilyn and Rich Hall, both employees of Microsoft, who have offered to use their computer training to help teach parents tips on how to keep an eye on children's Internet use.
"Some kids have free rein when they are home because parents don't know how to look at their history or lock out certain sites," Peixoto said. "We didn't want to have a presentation and leave parents with the fear without knowing how to address the issue.
"So, one of the families in the St. Mary's parish offered to host a series of computer workshops. We think we're going to have a lot of interest from our parents."
Peixoto said the program was organized before two recent incidents in which four men were arrested in two separate cases in North Attleboro and Pawtucket for allegedly sexually assaulting teenagers they met through MySpace.com.
