Halocho #268 - Honoring step-parents

The Ten Commandments are in this week's Torah reading.

Included in honoring ones mother and father is the Mitzva to honor ones father's wife and ones mother's husband even if they not ones parents.

It's is appropriate to honor step-parents even after ones parents are no longer alive.

However, honoring ones parents take precedence over honoring ones step-parents.
