Welcome To Bais Mordechai

The hope of this site is to be educational and inspirational. I see the Torah as an instruction manual given to us by a benevolent Father in heaven to help us navigate our lives, with stories and examples for us to learn from.
BIBLE = Book of Instruction By which to Live on Earth
FROG = Forever Rely On G-d
Frogs only jump forward not backward. So too must we continue to move forward in our quest for spirituality and contentment.

Honoring parents, why would we be commanded to honor our parents? Why would the command to do so be on the first set of tablets and not the second? Why is it that with honor the father precedes the mother and with fear the mother precedes the father?
