Chofetz Chaim Daily 9-11 Kislev

Chofetz Chaim Daily 9 Kislev 8:12 Asur to speak LH to a Jew. To a non-Jew is much worse because it causes a chilul Hashem. As well, the non-Jew will definitely believe it and cause the Jew great damage. Even more terrible is informing on a Jew to authorities. This is equal to apikorsus and great punishment awaits.

Chofetz Chaim Daily 10 Kislev 8:13 Asur for anyone to BELIEVE LH regardless of who the subject is, except for apikores & informers etc. 8:14 Likewise, it doesn’t matter who its heard from, even parents and family members. One is responsible for the behaviors of his household. He should therefore restrain them from LH and set a positive example.

Chofetz Chaim Daily 11 Kislev 9:1 Asur to speak AVAK LH which is a negative inference eg. “who would think ploni would end up so good?”, “its better we dont talk about ploni” Praising ploni in presence of an enemy or excessive praise to any listener is also avak LH. 9:2 All praise is asur in public, except about universally accepted Tzaddik.
