Daily Jewish Law - 2/15


We have been learning about lashon hara, harmful speech.

It is a mitzvah to listen to negative speech if the person telling it will be calmed by having a listener, such that he will stop spreading those words once he has told the story to the listener. Of course, the listener is prohibited from believing the negative report.

(Mekor Chaim 6:4)

Have a great day,
