‘Chofetz Chaim: Laws of Speech’ by Rabbi Beinish Ginsburg

25 02 2009

Naaleh.com welcomes a wonderful new addition to its courses, Rabbi Beinish Ginsburg’s class “Chofetz Chaim: Laws of Speech”. The class is a wonderful insight into the Sefer Chofetz Chaim, the paramount book on the Laws of Proper Speech. Rabbi Ginsburg begins each class with textual analysis of Sefer Chofetz Chaim (written by Rav Yisrael Meir Kagan), and then discusses practical applications of the material discussed.

Topics so far have been:

The Power of Words
Your Words Create You
Axiom for Avoiding Aveirot
Lashon Hara: The Root of Destruction
Ignorance Causes Improper Speech
Lashon Hara: ‘Mother’ of Aveirot

Rabbi Ginsburg’s ultimate goal is to encourage self awareness and self-improvement in the areas of Mitzvot bein adam l’chavero (human relations). May this new class help improve the lives of Naaleh students and those around them.
