For 5771 and going forward I will do my best to . . .
1) only think and say nice things about a fellow Jew
or say nothing and try to minimize any negative thoughts . . .
2) remember that only G-d knows our madragas (levels)
and observe that comparisons and judgments (uttered or not) on ritual observance, hecksherim (kosher supervision), and households goods, etc. are potentially harmful to everyone
. . . and may plant the seeds that foment baseless hatred . . .
3) look at the man in the mirror, and ask him to make a torahdich change . . . e.g. deter and avoid sessions of sanctimony with myself or fellow Jews
Preparation: initially slow cook for best results then simmer for a lifetime …
