A Lag BaOmer special on respecting your fellow human in personal relationships.

During Lag BaOmer we remember, we remember the tragedy of Rabbi Akiva's students stemming from lack of respect for each other. Rabbi Shea Hecht discusses respecting ones spouse, children, parents, in-laws and other personal relationships. Remember, you don't always need to be right, but also to be bright. Rabbi Hecht reads listener chats and emails about how to make sure Torah laws help in dealing with the in-laws.

Plus, as we see thousands visiting the tombs of Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai, Shimon HaTzadik and other sages, a listener asks about the origins of the tradition of praying at the the grave of our ancestors.
