The laws of speech with stories and parables - for all ages. By Rabbi Shimon Finkelman (Author)
The "shemiras halashon revolution" that swept the Torah world showed us how important - and, yes, how possible - it is for us to speak in accordance with the laws of proper speech. But how can we present those laws, with their many details and rules, in a way that is enjoyable reading for all ages? How can we inspire ourselves, our families, and, most important, our children, to truly follow the laws of proper speech?
The Family Lesson a Dayshows us how.
Like the stunningly successful A Lesson A Day, which helped bring the importance ofshemiras halashonto the general public,The Family Lesson a Dayadapts the teachings of the Sefer Chofetz Chaim, based on the daily learning schedule created by the legendary Manchester Rosh Yeshiva, Rabbi Yehuda Zev Segalzt'l. Specifically crafted for family use, each daily lesson includes true stories and delightful parables that bring the laws of proper speech to life. Each day's lesson also contains an inspiring one sentence excerpt from the Chofetz Chaim'sSefer Shemiras HaLashonthat conveys the beauty and importance of proper speech.
The Family Lesson a Dayis down-to-earth, informative, and inspiring. It will be appreciated by young and old, parent and child. It can be read and discussed at home, at the dinner table, or in the classroom.
And it will change your life as you learn and incorporate the Chofetz Chaim's timeless teachings on the laws ofshemiras halashon.
