Question:

Is it Lashon Hara and/or wrong to describe a person, yeshiva, or shul as ‘out of town’. (Not for Shidduchim purposes).
Thank You!

Answer:

It depends on the circumstances and what context it was said, if it was meant in a derogatory way or not, as sometimes it is used as a positive term, but sometimes not. Similar to saying that someone is an illuy. It can be said in a very positive praiseworthy fashion, or in a negative one.

Best Wishes
