Daily Halachos on Shemiras Halashon

Daily Shmiras Halashon Halachos
Lesson 1
Sometimes a rabbinical court/Bet din issues a ruling to make someone perform a certain action. When the person refuses to comply with the ruling without offering a valid legitimate excuse, the Bet Din is allowed to publicize the personís refusal. (ex. someone refusing to give his wife a Get/bill of divorce).

Lesson 2
It is forbidden to talk about another persons faulty negative character traits. This applies to 1. referring to a particular incident (i.e. someone got angry in a situation) and 2. general judgments about others (i.e. that person is always arrogant). This is considered lashon hora even if its a well known and accurate description of the person.

------------------------------------------------------
Lashon Hora = Saying a derogatory/negative statement about someone else that is TRUE


Motzi Shaim Ra (Defamation of Character) = Saying a derogatory statement that is FALSE
