      In the merit of this learning may Rafael Uri ben Tamar and Eden bat Tamar each be blessed with complete health, happiness, and only revealed good.

      The Mishna (Pirket Avot 2:5) teaches that a person should not judge another until they have stood in their place. This means that the person has essentially lived the other person's life: seen what they have seen, known who and what they have known and experienced what they have experienced. Only with that perspective can one person truly judge what another person says or does.

      The above standard is obviously impossible to meet. No one can understand what it feels like to be someone else. This means that a person's words may evoke a response from someone that is completely unexpected. A subject that seems benign may be loaded with emotional meaning to someone else because of their particular experience and personality.
