In giving Jews the Torah, God granted them a system of laws and beliefs designed to elevate the human personality to a lofty state. Among these laws, the principles of shmiras haloshon - harnessing the awesome power of the tongue - address most directly the question of what God requires in man's relationship with his fellow man. How we speak of others - how we see them, judge them, empathize with them and, when necessary, how we criticize them - defines us as people and as Jews. These aspects of life occur throughout each day, and these are the aspects that shmiras haloshon addresses. The power we wield when we speak is far beyond what we can perceive. Just as the negative consequences of speech can be vast, the positive consequences of proper speech are even greater. Adherence to God's laws of proper speech empowers our prayers, validates our Torah learning, accesses God's Divine protection and invokes the many blessings that God, in His kindness, is waiting to shower upon us. A Lesson a Day is a book with the concepts and laws of proper speech arranged for daily study. It is based on the works of Chofetz Chaim, whose life was a testimony to the enormous positive power of shmiras haloshon, and also includes vignettes from his life. 456 page Hardcover Book
