Halocho #350 - Respecting Torah authority

In Parshat Korach (the Torah Reading this week in Israel, next week in the Diaspora) we learn about the bitter end of people who argue with Torah authorities.

A person has to respect and honor his Rav - his Torah teacher - more than his parents; his parents look after his needs in this world and his Rav is ensuring him a good place in Olam Habah (Heaven).

Degrading a Torah scholar is so severe that a person can loose his place in Olam Habah (Heaven) for it.

One needs to stand up when ones Rav enters the room.
