Honoring Your Parents - Kibud Av V'Eim

Honor Your Father and Your Mother

Honor your father and your mother is one of the Ten Commandments, which are widely understood as moral imperatives by Jewish scholars.

What constitutes "honor?" One must provide them with food and drink and clothing. One should bring them home and take them out, and provide them with all their needs cheerfully.

כיבוד אב ואם

"כַּבֵּד אֶת אָבִיךָ וְאֶת אִמֶּךָ, כַּאֲשֶׁר צִוְּךָ ה' אֱלֹהֶיךָ, לְמַעַן יַאֲרִיכֻן יָמֶיךָ, וּלְמַעַן יִיטַב לָךְ, עַל הָאֲדָמָה, אֲשֶׁר ה' אֱלֹהֶיךָ, נֹתֵן לָךְ" (דברים ה' ט"ז)

"אִישׁ אִמּוֹ וְאָבִיו תִּירָאוּ, וְאֶת שַׁבְּתֹתַי תִּשְׁמֹרוּ, אֲנִי ה' אֱלֹהֵיכֶם" (ויקרא י"ט ג')
