Sandal Searching for Owner

The Israeli, Jewish "Lost and Found" is the antithesis of:
"Losers Weepers
Finders Keepers"

In Hebrew it's called "Returning Lost Objects."  According to Jewish Law, we have an obligation to find the owner and return the object.  The responsibility is on the finder.  That's why someone unknown made the effort to hang this sandal on a pole, to catch the eye.  Our local email list always has "found" announcements, usually before someone even realizes they've lost something.

Thanks I didn't realize that it's really a Parshat Shavua post, since the mitzvah is in yesterday's parsha.
