Honoring step-parents


One must honor step-parents so long as their spouses are still alive, as a function of the mitzvah of honoring their spouses (the biological parents).

It is appropriate to continue that honor even after the death of the direct parents, although this is not as strong an obligation.

(Code of Jewish Law Yoreh Deah 240:21)

Have a great day,
