Himalaya: Listen. Learn. Grow.
Rav Chaim Soloveitchik - Chidushei HaRambam
Reb Chaim explores why the sin of murder is one of the sins for which one must give their life rather than violate it. He suggests two possibilities: either because you cannot prioritize your life over someone else, or because nothing is gained when you save yourself at someone else's expense while doing a sin.
