About This Painting
The Chofetz Chaim was a tower of inspiration and Torah learning. He wrote many works, including the Mishnah Berurah which deals with the Jewish laws of every day life. It is written in clear Hebrew, and it’s considered today as integral source for practical Jewish living.
Ever the practical leader, he wrote many halachic guides intended for Jews in distressed or compromised situations. Machaneh Yisrael was directed toward Jews enlisted in the (Polish) army, under circumstances that precluded living a fully Jewish life, and Nidchei Yisrael was intended for Jewish peddlers and others living far from established Jewish communities. He is well known for this volume, “Chofetz Chaim,” which means Desires Life. In this book, he discusses the laws of Lashon Hara, speaking badly about other people and the importance to refrain from gossiping about others.
