# 2691 Call a Visit

Q. Can one comply with the mitzva of Kabolas Pnei Rabo (pay a visit to our Rabbis during Yom Tov) by zoom before Yom Tov?
A. Noda Beyehuda (O. H. 2: 17) maintains that in our days, when meantime there is no aliya leregel and we do not yet observe the pilgrimage to Yerushalaim, we are also not obliged to visit our spiritual leaders and teachers, lest their honor is seen as greater than the kovod given to our Beis Hamikdosh. His view is echoed by many Poskim.
Horav Shlomo Miller’s Shlit’a opinion is that although there is no obligation, there is an inyan or desirable tradition to do so, and it can be maintained when needed by a phone call also.
