Dear Rabbi,
Is there a Father's day and a Mother's day and in the Jewish religion?



Dear Stephanie Athea,
There sure is! It's called "Honor Thy Father and Mother" day. It starts on the 1st day of the year and continues on until the 365th. But don't worry, traditionally it does not last more than 120 years for any individual.
