Honoring Parents vs. Studying Torah


One who wishes to go study Torah with a certain teacher, because he is certain that he will meet success with that teacher, is not required to listen to a parent who protests due to safety concerns.

Note, though, that the child is separately obligated to take all necessary steps to preserve his life.

(Code of Jewish Law Yoreh Deah 240:25)

Have a great day,
