New Topic: Honor your parents


Today we begin a new topic, one near and dear to my parental heart: The mitzvah of Kibbud Horim, honoring one's parents.

There are two main biblical passages mandating this mitzvah:

"Honor your father and mother, so that your days may be increased upon the land that HaShem, your Gd is giving you."
(Exodus 20:12)

"A person shall have awe of his mother and father, and guard my Shabbatot; I am HaShem your Gd."
(Leviticus 19:3)

Have a great day,
