- Learning the basic vocabulary and concepts that relate to tochacha.
- Understanding how Vayikra 19:17 serves as the source for tochacha and constructive communication.
- Defining “constructive communication.”
- Appreciating that discussing issues that come up with our friends, neighbors and family can be absolutely essential for maintaining peaceful and loving relationships.
