Choosing between the elderly and the wise


When choosing whether to give primary honor to (1) the very elderly and somewhat knowledgeable or (2) the young and extraordinarily learned, we honor the former first in social settings and the latter first in judicial or Torah-study settings.

(Shulchan Aruch Yoreh Deah 244:18)

Have a great day,
