Shmuz #121

EMES The Whole Truth

Politicians lie, lawyers lie, salesmen lie, but we are honest, moral people, and we don’t lie… Unfortunately, the reality is that the world we live in affects us, and lies – sometimes little ones, sometimes bigger ones – tend to seep into and become part of our lives.

Reb Yisroel Salanter defines lying as “saying words with our mouths that our hearts know aren’t true.” Using this as our gauge of emes, we may well find that we bend the truth a bit more often than we would care to admit.

This Shmuz introduces us to the Torah’s definition of emes and aids us in becoming more honest in all of our dealings.
