Honor Due to ParentsBy Rabbi J. Immanuel Schochet, o.b.m.

“Honor your father and mother” is not an explicit one of the 7 Noahide Commandments. It goes beyond the basic universal prohibition of disgracing one’s parents. But the positive aspect of honoring parents was universally recognized by Gentiles from early Biblical times, as a sound ethical principle that should be observed. The optimal ways of observing it are found within the Torah’s guidelines.

Looking deeply into the implications and details of this precept, we find a profound religious significance that reaches beyond the literal context. This brief, provocative booklet explains the practical as well as the philosophical aspects of its fulfillment.
