Power of Speech

Answer Our Survey and Be Entered to Win an iPad

We combined two Torah Live series into one - "The Lost Light" & "The Power of Words"

In honor of this series, we are offering you a free gift - a download of the Chofetz Chaim's prayer asking Hashem to help us guard our tongues. Click here now to get your copy.

Negative speech has been the cause of untold destruction throughout our long history.

In this feature film about the laws of Shmirat Halashon, Torah Live takes a fresh and new look at this crucial topic: What is Lashon Hara? Why is it so destructive? When is it permitted to relay negative information for a constructive purpose? What is rechilus? What is one permitted to relate for shidduchim?

Power of Words
In this inspiring series, Torah Live takes a closer look at the power of words to build or destroy lives. The more we are aware of this incredible power, the better we will be able to use it for bringing sanctity into this world.

The Lost Light is very, very well done. Often, when negative behavior is presented in an exaggerated way for entertainment purposes, people think, “Well I would never act like that”. These nuanced dialogues are extremely realistic, and compels the audience to really examine our words to and about others. Future examples might include ona’as devorim of teens towards parents (unless I missed it?)

I agree. I really liked this, but I would like if you can add something about Motzei Sheim Ra

I know you included that Lashon Hara can be true or false, but you didn’t mention that false Lashon Hara is called Motzei Sheim Ra, and to speak Motzei Sheim Ra is an even worse Aveira than regular Lashon Hara!

We watched this over and over! We especially like the scenario of the woman who looked at everything in a negative way, but then changed.
