The Rabbi’s Message
"And from the animals that are not pure..." (Beresheet 7:2)
Noah was commanded to take from each specie seven pairs of
animals which are kosher and one pair of animals which are not
kosher, and bring them into the ark. The Torah calls the kosher
animals  (tahor) - pure - and the non-kosher ones are called
 (asher lo tahor) - those that are not pure. The
Rabbis point out that the proper word to use when describing the
unacceptable animals is  (tameh) - unclean, and yet the Torah
uses the longer phrase  (asher lo tahor) - which is not
pure. This is to teach us the importance of not using negative
words when talking about someone or something. The Gemara
tells us that once three Kohanim were describing what kind of a
portion each one received and one of them used a negative word to
describe his share. They checked up after him and saw that there
was something wrong with his lineage.
The lesson is very simple yet extremely important. The way
we speak says so much about ourselves. Not only what we say, but
the kind of words we use reflect on our character and on our spirit.
We should always try to use words of purity and beauty and stay
away from vulgarities and the like. It is especially difficult in
today's day and age, when the sharper the word, the more
recognition one gets. But it is much more meaningful if we put
some thought into the choice of words we use. If the Torah, in
which every letter counts, saw fit to add extra words in order to
speak in a positive way, shouldn't we do the same? Shabbat
Shalom. Rabbi Shmuel Choueka
