Rav Naftoli Amsterdam Recommends Getting A Heter Mei’a Rabbanim
Rav Naftoli Amsterdam one of the close talmidim of Rav Yisroel Salanter wondered why people run around to get 100 Rabbanim to allow them to marry a second wife which is only assur from a Cheirem of Rabbeinu Gershom. Shouldn’t they get 100 Rabbanim to sign off before they speak Lashon Hara which is an issur Min HaTorah, and one of the more severe ones at that? (Iturei Torah Kedoshim)
“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.
