Someone told me that in a recent lecture you said that children should not visit their parents who are non-observant Jews. Is that true?
I didn’t say that. What I did say is that children should cut off parents who tolerate a non-Jewish daughter-in-law or a non-Jewish son-in-law. Have nothing to do with them if they tolerate such a thing. And that needs more explaining but I won’t speak about it again right now.
But to not visit non-observant parents? That’s already impossible for anybody to say. On the contrary, children should visit their non-observant parents because there’s no question that observant children are going to have a positive influence on non-observant parents to some extent.
