Chofetz Chaim Daily 14-16 Nissan

Chofetz Chaim Daily 14 Nissan 10:1 Mutar to spread the injustice that ploni caused your friend IF it will help to right a wrong, or defame wrongdoers. 10:2 However you must fulfill 7 conditions: 1. absolutely factual 2. certain who the real villain is 3. rebuke perpetrator first 4. must not inflate crime 5. L’toeles & no personal benefit 6. first try other non LH solution 7. outcome must not be worse than Beis Din would mete out.

Chofetz Chaim Daily 15 Nissan 10:3 Continued from yesterday. Only mutar if speaker himself isn’t guilty of the same crime. 10:4 Considered l’toeles if purpose is to defame sinners. Asur to tell people that don’t think the injustice was wrong, because it will bring to rechilus. In scenarios that LH is mutar, it is a mitzvah to say. If asur, asur period.

Chofetz Chaim Daily 16 Nissan 10:5 Mutar to defame someone who spoke LH BUT only if the subject is aware of it. Otherwise it will lead to rechilus. 10:6 Even if the subject isn’t aware, mutar if it will create a preemptive benefit. Now people won’t believe the LH rumor that the speaker is trying to spread.
