DISCREET DWELLINGS

[2b bottom] Gemarah: A man must build a wall in such a way that he is not able to look at his neighbor’s crops [as this is forbidden due to damaging through Ayin Ra’ah (an evil eye)]. GM’ Bava Basra #60a: Chazal also state that it is improper to a door face your neighbor’s [as Bil’am praised our forefathers for scrupulously behaving otherwise, saying  [Bamidbar Perek24,Pasuk5] “How good are your tents, Yaakov.”

Prac-T-cal Tidbits: It is important to provide proper privacy. We should strive for this within our own lives as well as when interacting with others around us. We must remember that we are princes and princesses of the True King and must maintain royal modesty.
