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.
