Chapter One - Mishna 12 (2)

Loving people and bringing them nearer to the Torah
Hillel continues: "Love people and bring them closer to Torah." Aaron Hakohen loved all people. When Aaron knew that a man was not behaving in a Torah way like the man in this picture, he would go out of his way to be friendly and warm to him. When the man wanted to do something wrong, he would think to himself. "How can I do this bad thing? Aaron puts his arm around me and treats me with such respect. How will I be able to face him again?" In the end, the man would stop doing things that were wrong and change his ways to follow the behavior of a Torah Jew.
