318 - CURSING PARENTS


Exodus 21:17 -- “And he who curses his father or his mother shall surely be put to death.”

“The Torah is severe with respect not only to smiting or cursing apparent, but also to any act of contempt, for one who shows contempt for his father or mother even by mere words, or by the slightest hint, is cursed by the Almighty… and the Court must inflict punishment upon him as it sees fit.”*

* Shoftim, Hilchoth Mamrim V, 15
