Rising in Front of the Elderly

Today, I presented a class on the Jewish commandment to rise before the aged (מפני שיבה תקום) for my בין אדם לחבירו (interpersonal commandments) class (for the 2nd - 4th year students at my school). You can see there both the sources sheet I put together and listen to the audio file of the class.


  • Along with his hebraeophone fellow students, Drew Kaplan presents a review of texts relating to the mitzvah of rising before the aged (the "zaken"), and finishes with a summary of the cases to which this mitzvah may relate.
