dermotological/Spiritual Leprosy Dear Rabbi: Could you give a passage from scriptue that points out the 2 different types of Leprosy that you are speaking about? Just so I can see in context the difference in meaning. Reply

2 points Rabbi Gordon thank you so much for all the light you are gifted in drawing down to earth and passing on to others through your knowledge. One can always benefit by listening to such.
Would you please help me to understand further on two points:
(1) Just this last weekend I heard someone say that it is alright to mention something negative to another person about someone as long as it is done in the right way and for a beneficial reason. How should one view this?
(2) Also, in a passed Lesson you mentioned that "you can reverse a curse but you can't reverse a blessing." Would you please explain how one reverses a curse?
Thank you for your insight on these matters.
Shalom Reply
