Rabbi Yoel Schwartz (Jerusalem Court for Bnei Noah)


A person needs rest, but he should use this period of rest for the benefit of his physical and mental health. A person should not use his free time to engage in idle talk or matters that can bring him to sin. What a person does when he or she is away from home and among strangers decides that person’s real character.[1]
