New! 5-Minute Shemiras Halashon Shiur Before Maariv
Presents a Practical Loshon Hora Scenario and Halachic Perspective
In an effort to be ever-aware of not speaking loshon hora, and thus merit the rebuilding of the Beis Hamikdash, we have started a new, 5-minute shiur before maariv, during The Three Weeks.
It offers a practical loshon hora scenario and presents the question and the answer.
The shiur takes place
in the Beis Medrash from 9:50-9:55.
This project was inspired by the Green Speech Campaign, a project of Rabbi Michael Stern . For more information on how you can sign up for the Green speech campaign, see the website
