"Do not separate yourself from the community."
Ethics of the Fathers (Pirkei Avot) 2:15

There are times when it is not about intentions, but about what you actually do. The ancient sages taught the importance of being a part of community. There's a cautionary message in Ethics of the Fathers (Pirkei Avot) 2:15 that hints at being too holy, and spending too much time in solitude. Even if your intentions are good, balance is essential when looking inward. 

IF YOU LIKE THIS SCRIPTURE, YOU'LL LOVE PIRKEI AVOT 3:19!
