Guard Your Tongue
A Practical Guide to the Laws of Loshon Hora Adapted from The Chofetz Chaim
BY Rabbi Zelig Pliskin
A Practical Guide to the Laws of Loshon Hora based on the Chofetz Chayim. Loshon Hora (derogatory or damaging speech) has generated immeasurable suffering. It has caused the dissolution of numerous friendships, the termination of countless marriages, and has resulted in people losing their incomes. It is not an exaggeration to say that it has led to many an untimely death. Realizing the gravity of loshon hara (32 Torah commandments relate to loshon hora), Rabbi Yisroel Meir Kagan wrote the Chofetz Chayim, his classic compilation of the laws pertaining to speech. For those unable to study the original Hebrew text of this monumental work it has been nearly impossible to obtain clarity as to what constitutes loshon hara. Guard Your Tongue, an English adaption, renders the laws of loshon hora as set forth by the Chofetz Chayim into clear and straightforward language. The adapter has added scores of true to life examples to illustrate the practical applications of these laws. This guide is a must for every Jewish home and should be frequently reread. As Rabbi Isser Zalman Meltzer has noted, "Even if someone has learned the laws of loshon hara in their entirety, he definitely will not be able to observe them to their fullest extent without constant review."
