Revealing that Someone is a Baal Tshuvah


You are forbidden to relate information about a person’s past misdeeds or the misdeeds of his family even if you do not intend to belittle him, and you will not cause the listener to think less of him, as he has now corrected his deeds.

This is forbidden because a person is usually embarrassed if his misdeeds are recalled in his presence.  Hence, you might ultimately cause him anguish if the information becomes widely known. ~ Guard Your Tongue

    Someone asked me a question about someone and I told them that I rather not answer that question. At that very second, I got this email that related exactly to the question. Thank You so very much for the Chizuk.
