Mussar HaLashon: The Ethics of Speech

Di gantse velt licht afn shpitz tsang…Yiddish Proverb
“The future of the world is at the tip of the tongue”
  

Please join us for a workshop with Maggid Charna at Congregation Bonai Shalom

The Ethics of Speech: What is the power of the word?                     
 

According to the Baal Shem Tov, the quality of our speech is at the core of living a righteous life.  What is ethical speech and how do we give feedback that builds instead of tears down? 

In this workshop we will explore what Jewish tradition says about ethical speech, lashon hara (evil tongue), and tochecha (rebuke), as we apply it to our lives.

“It Started With Words” – Holocaust Survivors Give Stunning Testimonies To Mark Holocaust Remembrance Day

Before local anti-Jewish laws were enacted, before neighborhood shops and synagogues were destroyed, and before Jews were forced into ghettos, cattle cars, and camps, words were used to stoke the fires of hate. #ItStartedWithWords is a digital, Holocaust education campaign posting weekly videos of survivors from around the world reflecting on those moments that led up to the Holocaust – a period of time when they could not have predicted the ease with which their long-time neighbors, teachers, classmates, and colleagues would turn on them, transitioning from words of hate to acts of violence.
