Great advice for all relationships

The message of "Plausible praise" can be applied to all types of situations and relationships. Thank you!

Praise that someone cannot hear / l'shan hora?

I thought that talking about someone - whether negative OR positive - fell under "l'shan horah" and was not acceptable...??

Rabbi Y Freundlich, October 30, 2011 6:19 PM

Only negative or deragatory comments are lashon horah

The word "horah" means evil, or negative. The Torah only forbids speaking about someone in a deragotary way - certainly when not in their presence but even if they are there to hear it. Positive words, on the other hand, are not just acceptable but encouraged!
