Rating a Jewish company/product

Question:

Is it Lashon Harah to rate a Jewish owned company/product with a rating less than 5 stars? (4 stars?)
If yes, would one have to be mevarer to see if a company/product is owned by a Jew before giving a rating?

Answer:

If the company is a large company, then giving a 4 rating is not going to cause them any damage. Additionally, you don’t have to check if the owner is Jewish or not.

Best wishes

  1. Hi,

    What about a lower rating than 4 stars, and what if the company is not large?

    Also, what about reading reviews?

    1. If the company will have a loss because of the rating then it will depend on the individual situation.
