The Importance of Kibud Av V’Eim

As Yom Kippur approaches, let us give special honor and respect to our parents. Let us learn how to show love.

Let them grow old with the same love that they let you grow. Let them speak and tell repeated stories with the same patience and interest that they heard yours as a child. Let them overcome, like so many times when they let you win. Let them enjoy their friends just as they let you. Let them enjoy the talks with their grandchildren, because they see you in them. Let them enjoy living among the objects that have accompanied them for a long time, because they suffer when they feel that you tear pieces of this life away. Let them be wrong, like so many times you have been wrong and they didn’t embarrass you by correcting you.

Let them live and try to make them happy, on the last stretch of the path they have left to go; give them your hand, just like they gave you their hand when you started your path!Rabbi Dr. Bernhard Rosenberg
