Mitzvah #122 - Save the Jews!

One is prohibited from standing by and not assisting when a fellow Jew is in danger.

One has to assist even if it requires spending one's own money.

Preventing a fellow Jew from financial loss is included in this Mitzva.

For example, if one discovers a plot to steal from a fellow Jew, one is obliged to try and foil the plan, by offering them money, calling the police or whatever else will be effective.

Applies to everybody, everywhere,always.

Verse: "Do not stand by the blood of your brother" (Vayikra 19:17)
