When not to act piously –by Rabbi Hyim Shafner

URL: http://www.jewishjournal.com/morethodoxy/item/when_not_to_act_piously_by_rabbi_hyim_shafner

Though we are obligated to perform the mitzvoth with all their details and not to be afraid or ashamed, even so mitzvoth require great discernment, for this statement was said only about absolute obligations; but any added piety that if a person performs it the public will mock them for it, should not be performed; as the prophet says: “Walk humbly with your God.”
