We will begin with a look at what Jewish texts say about the power of speech, and familiarize ourselves with the basic laws of l’shon ha’ra (the evil tongue/gossip). 

As we explore ways to avoid engagement, we will consider a potential cure for l’shon ha’ra, namely developing and communicating paths of gratitude and understanding speech as an extension of our thoughts. We will also draw on the sparks and guidance provided through Mussar, the Jewish discipline that helps us fine-tune our ethical conduct.
