We are suffering much poverty because of the lashon hara we speak. This is what the Chofetz Chaim tells us.” At Mishmeres HaSholom’s Annual Representatives’ Convention this year, Rebbetzin Kanievsky, tlit”a, quoted her husband, Rav Chaim, shlit”a, “All our tzaros come from improper speech.” She added, “Who knows how many

You are the most important women in the world!” And, of course, there are the famous words of Rav Yehuda Zev Segal, zt”l, the Manchester Rosh Yeshiva, “The Chofetz Chaim will be a Heavenly advocate for anyone who learns or supports shemiras halashon… This is not a brachah, it is a fact!” Rebbetzin Wertzberger’s thousands of volunteers reach the people with one-on-one contact via distribution of the monthly chizuk magazine (total

You don’t have to be called Sarah to carry out a mission!

Who wouldn’t want the Chofetz Chaim as his advocate? Three women tell their stories
