The Jewish nation is certainly not short on enemies.  Yet, from all of our notorious tormentors throughout history two stand apart: Amon and Moav. Only they are barred from marrying a Jew for all eternity (See Devarim 23:3).

This treatment is uncharacteristically harsh surpassing the way the Torah treats any other of our oppressors. Their sin?  They failed to offer us bread and water when we encamped at their borders.  The question is obvious.  Although they may have lacked social etiquette, their actions were surely less severe than the genocidal atrocity of others, including the infanticide of Ancient Egypt!

Although the infraction of Amon & Moav may seem minor, one critical aspect set them apart - they were family!  They descended from the same lineage as Abraham and Sara.  It's one thing to antagonize the world, it's another to betray your own. 

We live in a world with many enemies. Yet, the most painful and pernicious threat we face are Jews that turn against their own.  Rosh Hashana is a time we focus on unity. Let us keep in mind that in the e nd, no matter what our ideology or  observance  level may be, we're all one family.  Together we stand strong.

Shabbat Shalom.
