Rav Yisrael Meir Kagan (1839 - 1933), when he was 35, began to teach Jews about the laws of Lashon Hara (proper speech). He published his first book, called Chofetz Chaim, by which he is known until this day. The name comes from Tehillim: "Who is the man that desires life (chofetz chaim)...keep your tongue from evil..." The Chofetz Chiam wrote over 20 more books.

A famous story captures the Chofetz Chaim's greatness: A wealthy businessman who was passing through Radin took advantage of the opportunity to visit the Chofetz Chaim. He was astounded by the lack of furniture in the Chofetz Chaim's home. Unable to contain himself, he asked, "Where is your furniture?" The Chofetz Chaim responded by asking where was his furniture. The man, a bit surprised by the question, explained that he was only passing through. The Chofetz Chaim smiled and explained that in this world, he too, was only passing through.
