Words that Hurt, Words that Heal: How the Words You Choose Shape Your Destiny

Hosted By: Orange County Jewish Community Scholar Program ("CSP")

Unless you, or someone dear to you, has been the victim of terrible physical violence, chances are the worst pains you have suffered in life have come from words used cruelly; from ego-destroying criticism, excessive anger, sarcasm, public and private humiliation, hurtful nicknames, betrayal of secrets, rumors and malicious gossip. Words also have the power to bring great healing, revealing indeed the single most important thing to know about words – they can heal.

Join us on Sunday October 17th at 11 AM PDT for a live co-sponsored program broadcast on Zoom from Temple Israel in Omaha, Nebraska when Rabbi Telushkin will discuss “Words that Hurt, Words that Heal: How the Words You Choose Shape Your Destiny”.

Teacher

Rabbi Joseph Telushkin

Rabbi Joseph Telushkin is a spiritual leader, well-known scholar of Jewish history and ethics and a prolific author. His large body of work includes more than fifteen books of nonfiction, a mystery series, and television and movie scripts. His book Jewish Literacy: The Most Important Things to Know About the Jewish Religion, Its People, and Its History is the most widely read book on Judaism of the past two decades. His monumental work, A Code of Jewish Ethics: You Shall Be Holy, is a comprehensive presentation of Jewish teachings on the vital topic of personal character and integrity. Richard Joel, president of Yeshiva University, called the book, "a gift to humankind," and Rabbi David Wolpe hailed it "as a remarkable guide to goodness." His book, Words that Hurt, Words that Heal, inspired Senators Joseph Lieberman’s and Connie Mack’s Senate Resolution #151 to establish a National Speak No Evil Day in the United States, a day in which Americans would go for 24 hours without saying anything unkind or unfair about, or to, anyone.
