Would You Hurt a Fly?


Would You Hurt a Fly?

Cruelty towards animals is strictly forbidden by the Torah. For two distinct reasons: one intrinsic to the life of the animal itself; the other extrinsic, yet no less important ... indeed, perhaps even more important.

"...really about distancing human beings from cruelty." I love this. Cruelty to animals is unconscionable. And this lesson is for all humanity. Thank you for this wonderful, timely teaching. Reply

Really enjoyed Rabbi Chighel's Lesson on "Would You Hurt A Fly?". Thank You! Actually, sometime back I was telling a friend, when We All Stand before G-d and Our Lifetime is graded on how We lived Our Lives, etc. I'm sure I will get to meet the Flys, Ants & Bees that I saved as well as the ones I did not save. Todah, Rabbi! Reply

Although implicitly suggesting that one wouldn't hurt a fly, it was not explicit. It would be nice to know halacha's ruling on swatting a fly. Reply

Oh he's supposed to be an Italian mobster now I get it.
