Volume 1, No. 25Welcome to the World of Rabbi Riddle.
Rabbi Riddle Says...
National Committee for Furtherance of Jewish Education

Talk isn't cheap!
  You Are What You Eat, So Eat Kosher!It only takes a little to help a lot!  
This week, we read two Torah portions, Tazria and Metzora. They teach us about a disease called Tzaraas. People who spoke gossip got this disease. They had to stay away from others until it went away. Today, we don't have Tzaraas, but we still must avoid speaking badly about people!

  • The Torah says, "You should not go about as a tale-bearer among your people." This teaches us that we shouldn't say bad things about others even if we are speaking the truth!

  • King David says in Psalm 34, "Guard your tongue from evil and your lips from deceit." According to our Sages, making silly faces, writing bad things or even making signs about people can be loshon hara--which means harmful speech!
