Sharing bad news too soon allows for misinformation and violates Jewish law. In a world where news spreads rapidly, the pain felt by families can be exacerbated by rumors and misinformation. The Torah specifically prohibits reckless behavior that causes unnecessary pain to others. Misinformation in times of war is extremely irresponsible and devastating. The responsibility to limit such activity lies with individuals, parents, and educators. Practicing restraint in sharing information prevents it from falling into the wrong hands and creating panic. It is important to internalize these lessons and behave with maximum restraint.
