Do you stand up when your father or mother walks into the room?February 17, 2011 9:41 pm at 9:41 pm #741766ZeesKiteParticipant
If you’re a Torah-Practicing Jew than you do. Who doesn’t?February 17, 2011 9:42 pm at 9:42 pm #741767truth be toldMember
When I learnt the halocha, I told my parents and started doing it (although it was very awkwad and difficult). They told me stop
However, it’s something I teach my kids (only at a formal setting such as meal, not everytime they’re playing on the floor, doing homework etcFebruary 17, 2011 9:43 pm at 9:43 pm #741768whocaresMember
If yes do you stand up M’LO KOMUSO (full hieght)?
And btw, if your parent is mochel, then you don’t need to!!February 17, 2011 9:47 pm at 9:47 pm #741769TumsMember
It is a chiyuv to stand up.
How is this even a question?February 17, 2011 9:48 pm at 9:48 pm #741770YW Moderator-80Member
it was more of a poll than a question
some people may not be aware of this HalachahFebruary 17, 2011 9:50 pm at 9:50 pm #741771always hereParticipant
who cares~ “And btw, if your parent is mochel, then you don’t need to!!” whew! I got nervous at the thought that my Torah Practicing Jewish children weren’t considered Torah Practicing Jews!February 17, 2011 10:21 pm at 10:21 pm #741772aries2756Participant
Unfortunately, this is something we don’t teach anymore. When I was a child we were taught to stand when up for parents, for teachers/mechanchim, for your elders.
At a wedding, I stand when grandparents walk down to the chupah, you can count on your fingers how many others follow.February 17, 2011 10:51 pm at 10:51 pm #741773well meaning busy bodyMember
Not that my opinion matters.
Why should I be mochel & deprive my children of an opportunity to do a Mitzva D’Orayso. This has nothing to with my personal worth, so there is no point in being an Anuv
Further I make it my business to ask my children to do things which I could very easily do myself, just to give them a Zchus especially my out of townersFebruary 18, 2011 1:13 am at 1:13 am #741775UnderstandMember
Just had this iscussion with someone in regard to Rebbeim. Ask boys who are in cheder if they stand up for their rebbeim. Most will tell you no. Not sure about the girls(we didn’t ask). I could not believe it. I don’t see why we can’t teach our kids this small act of kovod.February 18, 2011 5:20 am at 5:20 am #741776dunnoMember
We always stood up for teachers in school.
At one point I would stand up for my parents but they said they’re mochel it.
