Teachings of the Sages – 20th Nissan, 5769

“Many hasidic rebbes taught that you should speak softly and quietly, with humility. Rabbi Rafael of Bershad specifically emphasized that the tone of your voice should be gentle: ‘He would teach us to be careful even about the tone of our voice. For example, if you have to tell someone in your family not to do something, you should not speak in an angry or strict tone, but softly and gently. And he would remind us of what is written in the Ramban’s [Nahmanides’] Letter, that all your speech with your fellow man should be spoken gently’”

Daily Torah Quote – 20th Nissan, 5769

Rabbi Eliezer the son of Yaakov would say: He who fulfills one mitzvah, acquires for himself one angel-advocate; he who commits one transgression, acquires against himself one angel-accuser. Repentance and good deeds are as a shield against retribution.

Give It Five

By Yehuda Berg

Don’t get too caught up in what people say about you. Most of the time they’re not aware of what comes out of their mouths.

You might have experienced this: someone insults you and it sticks with you for days until you finally confront the person, only to be told in earnest, “I said what? I don’t even remember.”

This happens a lot more than we think.

Don’t take it personally today. Let everything go. Ask yourself, “will I care about this in five years from now?” Or better yet, five minutes.

The Problem With Speaking Lashon Hara To A Non-Jew

You must be especially careful not to talk Lashon Hara about another Jew to a non-Jew. In addition to the issur of Lashon Hara it will cause a Chilul Shem Shamayim. The non-Jew will stereotype and say that all Jews behave that way. This will causing harm to all of Klal Yisroel all because you couldn’t control yourself!

“Zachor Eis Asher Asa Hashem L’Miriam BaDerech B’Tzaischem MiMitzrayim”

The Ramban and other Rishonim count among the Mitzvos Aseh Min HaTorah the mitzva of remembering and saying with your mouth each day what Hashem did to Miriam when she spoke about her brother Moshe. The Chofetz Chaim in Shaar Tvunah Perek 12 says that being Mikayem this mitzva can save you from the aveira of Lashon Hara. More than just saying the pasuk, says the Chofetz Chaim, one must think about the incident in order for it to have its intended effect.
