I was recently on a vacation where a ten-year old Jewish boy (he was wearing a Star of David around his neck) was throwing limes in the pool. He was a smart alec to the security guard and the lifeguard who came to speak to him, and the adults who were supervising him had no clue what was going on. I was more disturbed by his behavior when I saw the Jewish star.

Do we have a greater responsibility for ethical and moral behavior when we are in public? Does that responsibility increase if we are wearing obvious signs of our Jewish heritage?
