Does the requirement apply to uncles and older cousins? What about brother in law or my wife's uncle?

    Hi David. Why do you think one must stand for a relative's Aliyah? Do you have any sources that detail or mention this requirement? Please edit your post to clarify. While you may have heard of it, try not to assume everyone has. – Double AA Jan 30 '17 at 20:36
  • For that matter, why is it necessary to stand for ANY aliyah? – DanF Jan 30 '17 at 22:30
  • I saw sifardim have a costom to sand for a father's Aliya, but by a Rav's Aliya even ashkenazi stand, I guess the reason is out of respect – hazoriz Jan 31 '17 at 0:44
