Blessing and Cursing


"Rabbi Yitzchak said: One who mentions a righteous person and does not bless him transgresses a commandment, as it is written (Mishlei 10:7), 'The memory of the righteous is for a blessing.' One who mentions a wicked person and does not curse him violates a prohibition, as it is written (ibid), 'The name of the wicked will rot.'"

(Midrash, Bereishit Rabbah 49:1)

Have a great day,
