Using the story of Korah, the rebellious biblical figure who “tells off” Moses, Rabbi Andrew Jacobs discusses what to do when we are troubled by the actions of someone else. Judaism teaches us that we are obligated to “rebuke” others who do wrong. At the same time, we are not supposed to supposed to fly off the handle and attack everyone who we feel has done us wrong. Really, Judaism does not embrace the idea of “telling somone off”. Rather, our tradition urges us to offer respectful, constructive criticism! So, sorry, there is no Jewish way to “tell someone off”!!!
