Rising for the pious?


There is some debate as to whether we are obligated to rise for the especially pious, if they are not also learned.

Many argue that rising is obligatory for all, even for those who are personally learned; others argue that most people should stand, but learned people are merely permitted to do so.

(Tur and Beit Yosef Yoreh Deah 244; Shulchan Aruch Yoreh Deah 244:12; Shach Yoreh Deah 244:10; Aruch haShulchan Yoreh Deah 244:14)

Have a great day,
