Onas Devarim - the Video

This is the funniest video ever. It is also about a very important Mitzvah - how to avoid Onas Devarim. Click here to read my earlier post about it.


  1. OMG! I love the cows!

  2. I loved the cows too. I also really dug the message. But I have a question - does Onas Devarim mean that I can't kid or joke around with my friends?

  3. Great question Steven. Friends love to joke around with each other all the time. It is part of what friends do. But you need to be sensitive. Oftentimes we hurt our friends more than we realize. Your friend may not say anything because he doesn’t want to look stupid or like he can’t take a joke, but he is hurting inside. You have to think before you speak. Ask yourself, “Would I like it if one of my friends said this to me?” If not - or you are not sure - it is better to stay quiet.
