Justify the actions of others


"One must always judge others favorably; the Smag ruled that this is a commandment. One must also argue for the merit of the Jewish people before Gd, and to find reasons to justify any [apparently incorrect] practice which the masses perform, which cannot be corrected. However, if one can correct it then one should do so, rather than 'enter a strained gap.'"

(Marganita Tava of R' Yehonatan Voliner, reprinted in Kol Kitvei Chafetz Chaim, #9)

Have a great day,
