The task of a rabbi

In his book, "To Heal a Fractured World," Rabbi Jonathan Sacks notes that when the great Rabbi Hayyim of Brisk was asked by his disciples to define the task of a rabbi:

"To redress the grievances of those who are abandoned and alone, to protect the dignity of the poor, and to save the oppressed from the hands of his oppressor."

All the rest is just commentary.
