Halocho #504 – Respecting parents

This Shabbat we will read the 10 commandments - let's review some of the laws of the 5th commandment.

One may not sit nor stand in one's parents designated place in the synagogue or at home or anywhere else where they may have a designated place.

One may not contradict parents.

One may not approve of one's parents in their presence (e.g. "I see your point"), as this indicates that one has the ability to say otherwise.

Even if parents insult one in public one may not upset them, though one may take legal action to recuperate any monetary loss they caused.
