The Maharsha (Rosh HaShana 18b, s.v. U'mee harago)1, on the premise that Gedalya was in fact righteous, addresses the remaining question of why, if HaShem considers the death of a righteous person to be as calamitous as the burning of the Temple, we only have a fast day to commemorate Gedalya's death and not the death of other righteous people. The ...

If I'm not mistaken we refer to such a person as a "talmid chaver" -- I was Rabbi ABC's student, but now I've learned enough to be his colleague. It appears that some respect is still called-for. Shulchan Aruch YD242:4 (among other places) discusses the concept. For instance: One may not render psak in one's rebbi's presence ... however if one is 10 ...

Per my comment, I'm having a hard time imagining a practical case where it would matter, but I found that Rav Aharon Lichtenstein in an article on the topic thinks that this statement in the Rambam (סנהדרין פרק כד הלכה יז) would indicate that it does apply to non-Jews: ואל יהי כבוד הברייות קל בעיניו, שהרי הוא דוחה לא תעשה של דבריהם, וכל שכן כבוד בני ...

One must stand for someone who is seventy. Source: YD 244:1; see discussion. Regarding a elderly person standing for another elderly person,the Aruch Hashulchan YD 244:9 brings the Tur who says וכתב עוד: דהכי מסתבר נמי בשני חכמים או שני זקנים, שאין אחד צריך לקום מפני חבירו, אלא יעשה לו הידור. עד כאן לשונו. one does not have to fully rise if he is also 70 ...

So long as you aren't erasing the text, recording content-related notes in a text's margins is a very traditional Jewish practice. Consider this page from a very old Tanakh:

Yes. Pirkei Avot Chapter 6 Mishna 3 One who learns from his fellow a single chapter, or a single law, or a single verse, or a single word, or even a single letter, he must treat him with respect. For so we find with David, king of Israel, who did not learn anything from Achitofel except for two things alone, yet he called him his "master," his ...

See Shulchan Aruch - Orach Chaim 151:12 יב יֵשׁ לִזָּהֵר מִלְּהִשְׁתַּמֵּשׁ (טז) בָּעֲלִיּוֹת שֶׁעַל גַּבֵּי בֵּית הַכְּנֶסֶת תַּשְׁמִישׁ קָבוּעַ שֶׁל גְּנַאי, כְּגוֹן לִשְׁכַּב שָׁם; וּשְׁאָר תַּשְׁמִישִׁים, יֵשׁ לְהִסְתַּפֵּק אִם מֻתָּר לְהִשְׁתַּמֵּשׁ שָׁם. הגה: וְכָל זֶה דַּוְקָא בְּבֵית הַכְּנֶסֶת קָבוּעַ, שֶׁנִּבְנָה מִתְּחִלָּה לְכָךְ, אֲבָל ...

The Mishna in Yoma 22 writes: בראשונה כל מי שרוצה לתרום את המזבח תורם ובזמן שהן מרובין רצין ועולין בכבש כל הקודם את חבירו בארבע אמות זכה ואם היו שניהן שוין הממונה אומר להן הצביעו ומה הן מוציאין אחת או שתים ואין מוציאין אגודל במקדש מעשה שהיו שניהם שוין ורצין ועולין בכבש ודחף אחד מהן את חבירו ונפל ונשברה רגלו וכיון שראו בית דין שבאין לידי סכנה התקינו שלא ...

Halachipedia writes amongst other items: There are some who try to justify a minhag of being lenient regarding standing for an elder and Talmid Chacham. [8] The reference reads: 8 Shach 244:11 seems to say that the minhag is to stand only for an Av Bet Din or Rosh Yeshiva, but he leaves it as a tzarich iyun. Rav Chaim Zonenfeld in ...

http://www.hakhel.info/SeferMitzvosHaKatzar.html MiP’nei Seiva Takum VeHadarta P’nei Zakein--this is the Mitzvah to stand before one who has reached the age of 70 [some say 60] and to honor Talmidei Chachomim and stand before them, even if they are young. If one is older [70 or 60], one must rise before him even if he is not a scholar and even ...
