Bullying Awareness & Prevention

A widow without children, “Yettele had a lot of time for minding other people's business.” Not only does she spread rumors from one neighbor to another, but she always has the facts wrong and surmises the worst. Eventually, everyone in Ostrow is afraid to talk to her, so she goes to the Rabbi. He finds a rather gentle but highly persuasive way of teaching Yettele how words can injure and how difficult they are to take back once uttered.
