Our words have great power.
The prohibitions of Lashon Hara are among the most fundamental and oft-overlooked tenets of Jewish law. Eminent rabbinical scholars have discussed, written and codified what is and what is not proper speech.
This body of work explores the progeny of the seeds of Lashon Hara and their impact on the spiritual realm and the physical universe. While this narrative is steeped in Jewish teachings, it extols a simple, universal concept: We should not speak ill of one another except to advance constructive purpose, and then only within the embrace of a compassionate humanity.
My narrative is intended to continue the commentary, to stimulate awareness of the impact of our words. From that – perhaps – the factions become the whole and a common good evolves.
