Awe of one's parents


As we cited yesterday, one of the main passages prescribing honor of one's parents actually uses the term awe: "A person shall have awe of his mother and father, and guard my Shabbatot; I am HaShem your Gd."

Awe includes, among other things, not standing in the designated spots where they socialize or pray or eat.

(Code of Jewish Law Yoreh Deah 240:2)

Have a great day,
