Shabbat Shalom

Separated from the community for his disparaging speech, the leper reflects on the value of words. He realizes how much evil he has generated. Words can hurt or heal. Words can cause pain or pleasure. They can lead to despair or lift a life. How do we speak? How many families are broken because of harshly spoken words? How many friendships destroyed? Our words used thoughtfully can enhance, elevate and enrich our families and community. As King Solomon wrote - Life and Death are in the hand of the tongue.

This Shabbat, I want to welcome a friend, Reverend Gregory Doll and his wife Kimberly from Noroton Presbyterian Church. They are visiting with his confirmation class on Shabbat morning as part of their exploration of the Jewish faith.

Finally, as Pesach is around the corner, please take advantage of the numerous ways to prepare for the holiday offered by Agudath Sholom. click here to visit our Pesach website for more information.

Wishing you and your families a Shabbat Shalom

Rabbi Daniel Cohen

CAS Youth

April 5, 2014

Metzorah

It is the mission of Congregation Agudath Sholom Youth Department to provide innovative religious and recreational activities for babies through senior teens, which infuse core Torah values and a general menschlichkeit into the daily lives of our youth.

PARENTS & YELADIM:

Did you know that it is possible for a person to be murdered and not even know about it, even carrying on life as usual?

How can this be? This week's Torah reading speaks of the affliction known as tzara'at. The commentators explain that tzara'at was a punishment for the transgression of speaking lashon hara. Lashon hara, which translated literally means "the evil tongue" or "evil speech," includes slander, gossip and rumors, among other things.

As the old British wartime adage goes, "Careless talk costs lives." The Talmud relates in the name of Rabbi Shmuel bar Nachmani: "Why is the evil tongue called a thrice-slaying tongue? Because it kills three people: the person speaking, the person spoken to, and the person being spoken about." It may not kill them physically, but it is character assassination.

Maimonides adds a further dimension: sometimes a person may say something that is not quite slander or gossip. Yet, as his statement passes from person to person, it eventually does cause harm, trouble, fright or hurt to the party being spoken about.

For example, even praising a person, if done in front of that person's enemy who is liable to react negatively, could come under the category of slander or gossip.

Orchot Tzadikim ("Ways of the Righteous") comments: "Before you speak, you are the master of your words. After you speak, your words master you." How often we feel imprisoned by our own words after we have said something that we wish we hadn't or know we shouldn't have.

YELADIM:

The Midrash relates that Rabbi Shimon ben Gamliel asked his servant, Tavi, to buy him something good from the market. The servant returned with some tongue. Rabbi Shimon then asked his servant to buy something bad from the market. The servant returned with more tongue. "How can this be? I asked you to buy something good, you bought tongue; I asked you to buy something bad, you also bought tongue?" Replied Tavi, "It has good and bad. When it is good, it has a lot of goodness. When it is bad, it is very bad."

We speak thousands of words every day. Words have enormous power. May we merit to use them only for good purposes.

Age Specific Topic to Discuss at your Shabbat Tables:

Grades 4-6

1.When the person believes he is healed, to whom does he go?

2.For what sin is Tzara'at a punishment?

3.When does the healed person have to bring three sacrifices??*(Double nekudot question!!)

Grades 1-3

4.What other Parsha is usually read together with this week's Parsha?

5.What is the first thing one must do if someone sees a blemish on himself? *(Double nekudot question!!)

Please come to Rabbi Jeiger or Zach Kfare and get 2 nekudot (or 4 for the bonus question) if you can tell us about your family discussion of any of these questions or the d'var torah.

Thank You/ Hakarat Hatov/ Welcome Corner
