Halacha - Borocho on rainbow
Submitted by Simcha  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question: What does the Chayei Odom (klal 63 / halocho 4) mean when he writes not to tell another person there is a rainbow "mita'am motze dibo"? Thank you
Answer: The rainbow is a reminder that the world is wicked enough to deserve another flood, and Hashem is only sparing us because of the bris He made with Noach. Therefore, pointing out to someone how evil our generation is, is considered Lashon HaRa.
