clarification on embarrassing


B”H Thank you for your help. It is always appreciated.
My question is: if two people are in a home and one of them is on a video call, and the other person (in the house) laughs at something totally unrelated in another room, is there any risk of “embarrassing the person on the video call” because they may think someone was laughing at them? (regarding the other person in the house, I asked and they did not feel embarrassed or even notice the laugh…) I am still trying to learn the halacha of not embarrassing others- and I am unclear about the parameters of how far it goes. It goes without saying there was no intent to embarrass anyone…Thanks very much.


It is nice that you are so careful about other people’s feelings, but if he person didn’t get embarrassed, you don’t have to worry that you might have embarrassed them.

Best wishes
