The Fifth Commandment
Honoring parents - laws, insights, stories and ideas.
By Rabbi Moshe Lieber (Author)
Honoring Parents laws, insights, stories and ideas. May parents insist that their children pray with them? May a daughter attend an Israeli seminary if her parents object? May a surgeon operate on his parents? How binding are parental instructions left in a last will? When is disobedience permitted? Mandatory? Most people follow their instincts and emotions in trying to fulfill a mitzvah that, in reality, is replete with halachic detail. This book provides it. It deals with realistic questions, and handles them authoritatively and sensitively. Includes many previously unpublished rulings of HaGaon Rabbi Yosef Shalom Eliashiv shlita.
