It’s a Mitzvah to return a fellow Jew’s lost property.

If one found an item that is below one’s dignity to pick up – and even if it was one’s own property one would leave it on the street – then one need not deal with it. However, it’s appropriate to anyway deal with it.

Since it’s a Mitzvah to return a person’s earthly property, then it’s definitely a Mitzvah to return a person’s spiritual property; the Torah which is our heritage.

Applies to everybody, everywhere, always

Verse: “…you shall surely return them your fellow man” (Devarim 22:1)
