Honor, not Respect, for our parents
I love that Judaism commands us to honor our parents. Not love; not even respect. These are emotions. These have to be earned. Some parents never earn them--they're abusive, self-absorbed, neglectful of their children's basic needs. But they are worthy of honor because they serve as Hashem's conduit for the continuation of the Nation through us. We honor them in specific ways--never sitting in their seat at the table, never challenging them in public, etc--which reminds us that we must honor ourselves as representatives of Hashem in this world. Pretty cool stuff!

This show is about four young men who are all stereotypes; Howard is the worst of them, the Jewish man who never grows up.
