Subject:  Kissing the Hand
Message:  Dear Rabbi Abadi,

It is the Sephardic way to kiss the hand of a Rav to show honor. Are you saying that if one’s stepfather is a Rav that this kavod should not be extended to him?

Respectfully and sincerely,
Dolores Bender White
Reply:  A woman kissing the Rabbi's hand? That is really not allowed. Show honor by keeping the Mitzvot.
