When children become religious, it is a rejection of the lifestyle of their parents to a certain extent. But that shouldn’t mean that they reject their parents as well.
I have witnessed this phenomenon time and time again: religious children and grandchildren who remain incredibly close and loyal to secular grandparents. Even more than the other non-observant children and grandchildren. Because for religious Jews, respecting parents takes TOP PRIORITY.
That was why this cute home video moved me so deeply. To see an Orthodox son and his kids paying a heartfelt tribute to grandpa in honor of his 70th birthday. You can just feel how much they love their Saba.
