When do we rise?


The obligation to rise for the wise or the elderly begins when they enter one's immediate space, within a radius of about 7-8 feet. The idea is that it should be clear that one is rising out of respect for them, rather than for some extraneous reason.

(Shulchan Aruch Yoreh Deah 244:2; Taz Yoreh Deah 244:3)

Have a great day,
