“Reminders From Chafetz Chaim”

“Who is the man that desires life (hechafetz chaim) who loves days to see good? Guard your tongue from evil…” (Tehillim 34:13)

Rabbi Yisrael Meir Kagan of Radin, aka Chafetz Chaim based on the above verses by King David, was a Torah scholar and tzaddik in all areas of life; but, he is mainly remembered for his powerful teachings on Lashon HaRa (an evil tongue).

The real power of a human being is speech, as pointed out by Onkelos (the first century translator of the Torah into Aramaic) who translated “living soul” of Bereishit 2:7 as “speaking spirit.” As such, it is speech more than thoughts and even deeds that create havoc in the upper spiritual worlds, thus causing chaos and evil to reign below. As the Chafetz Chaim points out to us, the Second Holy Temple was destroyed according to the Sages because of “causeless hatred between brothers,” but this “hatred” manifested in the world as lashon hara! How chilling!

This calendar will just bring a Torah thought for each month from the teachings of the great Chafetz Chaim in either his Sefer Chafetz Chaim (the laws relating to proper speech) and/or Sefer Shmirat HaLashon (Guarding the Tongue, the profound teachings of the Torah relating to proper speech). We hope that all of us will be reminded each time we use this year’s calendar to “guard our tongues from evil” and use them only for good.

Like an antidote to the chaos and darkness G-d said “Let there be Light (OR אור), and there was Light.” Even though Chanukah is a rabbinically established holiday, we find that from the very beginning Chanukah is stamped in the text: the twenty-fifth word of the Torah is OR אור and Chanukah begins on the twenty-fifth day of the month of Kislev…
