Emphasizing Everyday Emes – Our Name

The Foundation’s name comes from the work of the Chofetz Chaim with the same name, "Sefer Sefas Tamim" (the Book of Wholesome Speech). This Sefer focuses on the importance of honesty in word and deed.  When one studies this work of the Chofetz Chaim, one gains an appreciation of the value the Torah places on everyday honesty and integrity.

Emphasizing Everyday Emes – Our Mission

The Sefas Tamim Foundation emphasizes the importance of Everyday Emes in our lives through the educational and inspirational study of Halacha, Mussar and Chizuk in the following areas:

• In Thought: being honest with ourselves.
• In Speech: keeping the commitments we make to each other.
• In Business: being honest in business and with our personal finances.

Emphasizing Everyday Emes – The Importance

1)  Gemara Brachos – Daf 55: The stamp of Hashem is Emes.
2)  Mesilas Yesharim – Perek 11: One who is careful in Emes is if he upholds the foundation of the world.
3)  Pirkai Avos – Perek 1: Rabbi Shimon ben Gamliel says that the world stands on three things: Din, Emes, Shalom

Emphasizing Everyday Emes – The Need

Rava says that the reason why Yerushalayim was destroyed was because of a lack of trustworthy people - (Gemara Shabbos 119b)

Baruch Hashem, there are organizations dedicated to Chesed, Tznius, Lashon Hara, etc. but until the founding of the Sefas Tamim Foundation, there were no organizations devoted exclusively to strengthening the value we place on Everday Emes.
