What does it mean to “keep the peace” in society? Is it about enforcing the law and order of society in order to ensure against anarchy or is it about balancing between conflicting perspectives and needs of various members and groups of society, thereby making peace between them? This question will be addressed through exploring conflicting interpretations as to why Pinchas was rewarded with becoming a Kohen and through discussing conflicting understandings of the role of police today, especially in light of the recent protests in the aftermath of the murder of George Floyd.
