Daily Jewish Law - 2/20


We have been learning about lashon hara (harmful speech).

We have said that one is not permitted to believe a negative report about a person. This is true even if the negative report is told in front of its subject, who does not deny it. Perhaps the subject did not wish to demean himself by entering a fight, or perhaps he thought he would not be believed.

(Mekor Chaim 7:2)

Have a great day,
