Mitzvah #227 – Setting the record straight: Rebuke

It’s a Mitzvah to rebuke a sinner by informing him which action was improper and that it’s in his best interest to improve his ways, in order that he merit eternal bliss in Olam Haba – the world to come.

However, one may not embarrass the sinner, by rebuking them in the presence of other people.

One need only rebuke those people who might listen to the rebuke and stop sinning.
Conversely, it’s a Mitzvah to accept rebuke and to love the person doing the rebuking.

Applies to everybody, always, everywhere.

Verse: “You shall surely rebuke your fellow man” (Vayikra 19:17)
