Another difference when tearing kriah for the loss of a parent


The general practice is that when tearing clothing in mourning, one tears the right side of the garment, and one tears from the upper hem downward. However, one who is mourning for a parent tears the left side, toward the heart.

(Code of Jewish Law Yoreh Deah 340:12; Taz Yoreh Deah 340:6)

Have a good day,
