One Way to Ensure a Good Year

In the Viduy we ask forgiveness, “For the sin that we have sinned through evil talk.” The saintly Chafetz Chaim remarked, “With the approach of the Yomim Noraim, people resort to all kinds of expedients and practices to be inscribed for a good year. They go to Tashlich, they perform the kaparos ritual, and so on.  Why don’t they also think of the simple remedy of not listening to lashon hara, gossip and tale-bearing? For in return, the Heavenly Judge will turn a deaf ear to Satan’s accusations and grant them a good year.”
