“Our parents never had to tell us not to yell at anyone; we never heard them yell at anyone. Our parents never had to tell us not to speak loshon hora (slanderous speech); we never heard them speak loshon hora”. This was part of Sruly Nadoff’s eulogy for Rabbi Binyamin Nadoff.
“I always thought that if G-d would be a person, G-d would have been Mrs. Nadoff” said a student after Mrs. Nadoff’s funeral.
“You shall… walk in G-d’s ways…” (Divorim 10:12) The Gemara (Sota 14a) says that this means to emulate G-d’s traits.
Actions speak louder than words!!
Have a great Shabbos !!
Rabbi Chaim Flom
