Rabbi: Study Torah, Watch Your Tongue

Rabbi Yehuda Leib Steinmann, one of the important rabbis in the hareidi community, called on the community, Thursday, to increase its Torah study in the wake of the bad news of the week, including the passing of a number of rabbis, including heads of yeshivas.

The rabbi called on people to guard their tongues against slanderous speech and to be strict in their observance of Shabbat, which he said coupled with learning Torah.
