First Section – the Positive Commandments

60. It is a positive commandment to love every Jew like oneself

As it states in Vayikra (Leviticus) 19:18, “Love your neighbor as yourself.” Therefore, one must protect another’s body, money, and honor as much as he would for himself. If a person honors himself through another’s disgrace, he has no portion in the World to Come. Included in this positive commandment is to make peace between and a man and his friend.

This applies in all places and at all times, for men and for women.
