Protecting others' property


'Returning a lost object' is not limited to picking up a physical item and restoring it to its owner. This Mitzvah also includes protecting the property of others.

For example, one who sees that a river is about to overflow and flood another's field is obligated to do what he can to dam up the river.

(Code of Jewish Law Choshen Mishpat 259:9)

Have a great day,
