Subject:  Rabbis & Fathers -in- law
Message:  1. The Rov of my shul got up and announced that he is going to start asking people to be quiet in the middle of shul even though it will mevayesh the person. Does he have the right to do this? Isn't being Mevayesh someone like killing him?

2. Is there a special mitzvah in the Torah (besides Shalom Bayis} to honor a father in law? If there is can you please give me the mekor?

Reply:  1. Yes, that is why he announced that he is going to start doing it. This way, if someone doesn't want to get embarrassed, he won't come to shul.
2. yes, Shulchan Aruch, Yore Deah, Siman 240 #24
