Special Chafetz Chaim Study Project In Memory of Edith (Ita bat Eliyahu) Penzner z"l

Dear Friends,
 
It is traditional to complete the study of a Jewish text (usually the Mishna or a tractate of the Talmud) in honor of a recently deceased person.
 
Our mother, mother-in-law, and grandmother, Edith (Ita bat Eliyahu) Penzner z"l, passed away last Friday morning in her sleep. Devra is sitting shiva at our home until Thursday morning, June 7.
 
One of Edith z"l's outstanding traits was Truth.
 
In memory of our mother, mother-in-law, and grandmother, we have decided to launch a special learning program.
 
We urge you to study one chapter of the classical Jewish book of guarding our speech, the Chafetz Chaim, in memory of Ita bat Eliyahu zichrona livracha.
 
Please choose one chapter of this book according to the following table (preferably according to your birthday to try to spread the coverage) and complete it by Edith z"l's shloshim, July 3 2007 (19 Tamuz 5767). You can certainly study more than one chapter.
 
Please notify us of the chapter you have chosen at chofetzchaim@holycityprayer.com, and again when you have fulfilled your pledge.
 
An English rendition of the Chafetz Chaim book can be found online at http://torah.org/learning/halashon/.
A Hebrew precis (sort of) can be found at http://www.netsor.org/halachot.asp.
In any case, it is a good idea to purchase the book in Hebrew or English, available at all Jewish bookstores.
 
Please forward this email to your friends and relatives who you think might appreciate getting it. Our apologies if you receive it more than once.
