Jewish Ethics Quiz


Judaism has a lot to say about ethics. How can we be responsible businesspeople? What constitutes talking about someone (and is it ever good to)? How can we be mentsches -- and what is a mentsch, anyway?

    Question 1 of 7:

    Why is gossip, or rekhilut, prohibited?

     Because it would look bad if Jews were caught gossiping
     Because it can hurt people emotionally and materially, even if it seems innocent
     Because it's not productive
     Because it can cause you to become a leper (metzorah)
