Kavod Talmidei Chachamim

1501 – Kavod Talmidei Chachamim – (Klal 69) – Protesting Lack of Kavod

 We are discussing the halachos of kavod talmidei chachamim. If a person is in a situation where people are being mevazeh talmidei chachamim, they have a chiyuv macha’ah, to protest against the bizayon.

1500 – Kavod Talmidei Chachamim – (Klal 69) – Hiddur 9 – Elderly People 

 We are discussing the halachos of kavod talmidei chachamim. Today, we will discuss the halachos of a seivah. We learned (shiur 1484) that it is a machlokes whether seivah begins at age 60 or 70, and since this is a question of a chiyuv deoraysa, one should be machmir. Although we learned (shiur 1487) that …

 We are discussing the halachos of kavod talmidei chachamim, specifically the halachos of hiddur. When one speaks to a talmid chacham, one must use whichever titles are most appropriate.

If a person needs to correct or challenge a talmid chacham, …

 We are discussing the halachos of kavod talmidei chachamim.
