One of the problems with modern suburban American life is the fact that we are often very removed from the needs of our neighbors. We get in our cars, we go into our houses and only sometimes do we really know what is going on with each other. I think of this each year around lawn mowing and snow blowing and all the expensive things many suburban home owners have. I use the lawn mower for about 1 hour each week in the summer. The same piece of equipment could be shared by a whole street! But we don't. We have no comfortable mechanism to get into each others business, in a positive way. And so when we do help or share, it is often through our church or synagogue, where we have a framework to know each other better.
