The following letter was recieved via email:
Dear Yeshiva World,
He had told me that he and my other siblings were talking amongst themselves, and they were trying to figure out the best way to approach me with this question. I guess he (yes, it was my brother) who was elected to pursue this issue.
That is where my problem lies.
My message is to have a little shmiras haloshan, because you have no idea how much damage your words can cause. Plus, if you are sincere about helping another individual, make sure your story has at least some truth to it.
I apologize for the length of this letter, but I just felt that it was necessary to be said.
Thank you for this forum.August 20, 2008 1:00 am at 1:00 am #620579favishMember
we think you should find out who, and confront him,and make him eat his words…if people who pass on rechilas and know they will be made VERY uncomfortable for such ‘homcicide’ they will think twice before…August 20, 2008 2:30 pm at 2:30 pm #620580squeakParticipant
I’d say check with your wife, maybe she wasn’t careful about what she said (or to whom she said it) when she was upset and venting. That’s common.August 20, 2008 6:52 pm at 6:52 pm #620581feivelParticipant

there was a book called the perfect life which was a story (i would imagine one that was originally true) about a couple with 2 kids that were very happy and then the husband or wife landed a certain role in a play about a couple about to get a divorce, they were rehearsing a scene when unfortunately a good friend of the wifes happened to be coming up the drive to see her yell and scream at her husband the friend spread it around town and people stopped associating with them and the husband was turned down for a promotion when they realized what was going on it was too late because the friend who started all the rumors had gotten sick and shed passed away so no one was able to undo the damage from an “innocent mistake” these stories happen often unfortunately but we dont always hear both sides of it. I think this is a branch of the fact that people have virtually no respect todayAugust 22, 2008 4:14 pm at 4:14 pm #620584cherrybimParticipant
Whenever I have heavy duty questions, I consult my Rov, he sure makes my load a lot lighter.
