Watching: Rabbi Zev Leff on ShortVort.com


We see that Yitro, when advising Moshe to set up a system of courts and find people to answer all minor questions and to give advice, advised Moshe to find ‘anshei emet’ ‘people of truth’ to fulfill these roles.

What are ‘men of truth’ – people who will answer the questions and give advice in accordance with the truth, people who would not let the decisions they take be affected by anything other than the truth, people who would not let their self or other interest influence their decisions.

Possibly, we can learn from here: i) the importance of consulting with anshei emet when making our own decisions & ii) that each of us should strive to be anshei emet, ‘men of truth’, when we are consulted for advice.

That we should strive to prevent any factor other than the best thing for the asker from influencing any advice that we offer.
