The Laws #69

Reigniting the Flames

Another manifestation of rechilus is a devious type of rechilus where I go over to you and say something like, wasn’t there a while back when you were deeply embarrassed by somebody, something like that when you were in school? If my intention is to bring back in your mind’s eye the memory of Reuven embarrassing you, Reuven hurting you, that is called rechilus b’ramaus. It is called trickery, a devious manner of rechilus, but it is within the category of rechilus.

If my intention is to bring back that memory to you, and thereby you’re going to again relive that memory and you’re going to relive that sense of being hurt, being embarrassed and anger at the person who did it, so it’s within the category of rechilus and it’s forbidden as regular rechilus.
