A Rabbi

“What is the primary function of a Rabbi? To redress the grievances of those who are abandoned and alone, to protect the dignity of the poor, and to save the oppressed from the hands of the oppressor.”

Rabbi Chaim Soloveitchik of Brisk

h/t Rabbi Joseph Telushkin, A Code of Jewish Ethics, Volume 1: You Shall Be Holy
