Daily Jewish Law - 2/19


We have been learning about Lashon HaRa, harmful speech.

We said yesterday that one should believe a negative report about a person, to the extent required to protect himself in case the report is true. However, that only permits measures of self-defense; aggressive measures such as pre-emptively harming or embarrassing the other person are strictly prohibited.

(Mekor Chaim 6:11)

Have a great day,
