Description

The counting of the nation emphasizes the importance of demonstrating one's yichus before he could be counted in his tribe or as a full member of klal yisrael. This emphasis on yichus seems to directly contradict a core value of Western liberal society, that judges people on who they are and how they act, and not on their birth. Can we bridge the two value systems? It's not as easy as it seems.
