Devrei Torah relating to the weekly Parsha.

Good eitza to stop talking during davening -A Moment with Rabbi Avigdor Miller Zt"l #489
Parshas Shoftim 5779


What would be a good eitza not to talk devorim b'teilim in a beis haknesses?

First of all, if it's during chazoras hashatz, keep in mind what the Torah says, ha'soch sichah b'teila b'soch chazorass hashatz, goarim bo, you have to scold him, v'gadol avono m'nesoh, his sin is too big to forgive. You hear that? If you talk during chazoras hashatz, then goarim bo, you have to rebuke him, v'gadol avono m'nesoh, his sin is too big to forgive. It's against k'vod shomayim, that's how serious it is. And Baruch Hashem there are plenty of botei medroshim where people enforce this.

Now after the tefillah is over, you have to be careful however, people are putting together their tefillin, and some begin to joke around, they laugh and talk. Don't forget, you are standing lifnei Hashem, in a beis haknesses, or in the yeshiva. Never forget that - even after davening, you're putting together your tefillin and you're ready to go home, keep quiet, keep your mouth closed. Remember that you have to be m'kayem, vdibarto bom v'lo b'devorim acheirim.

Once when the Chofetz Chaim was a young man, he brought his sefer on Shmiras Haloshon to Reb Yisroel Salanter zochrono l'virocho. He said "A yungerman made a fine sefer on shmiras haloshon, you should also make a sefer on devorim b'teilim." It's an important thing to make a sefer on devorim b'teilim, idle talk.

Especially in the Beis Haknesses, you should never talk idle talk, but if you're still in the mood of talking, wait till you get out on the street, not in the Beis Haknesses.

Good Shabbos To All
