For whatever reason, every single time I see a man in a tallis in shul (for example during davening on a Yom tov), or when I read about an elderly man in tallis walking up to the bimah in shul in a book, or when I remember the second rosh hashonah of my sons life when he was under the tallis during birkas kohanim, I get unusually teary and emotional. I have tears in my eyes right now. ARGH.
I actually ugly cried seeing my son being held under a tallis that day. 馃槀
I also cried when my son鈥檚 cries filled the entire shul at his bris. One part cried for his pain. But overall I cried cuz this was my FIRST ever born, now Jewish child. I鈥檝e only been to one bris before my son was born and I cried that time too 馃檲馃檲
It also happens when a new shul receives a new Torah, when the people are singing around the chuppah. I forgot the Hebrew word for it.

But weirdly enough I don鈥檛 cry when I light shabbos candles cuz usually my son is pulling at my robe demanding food or to have a playmate RIGHT NOW.

What are some things frum people do that tear at your heartstrings?

By the way I don鈥檛 want these intense feelings to go away. But sadly I know they will. Sad

Every wedding ever. Except for my own children's interestingly. Maybe I was too busy.
A baby boy's brit. Funerals but not only for the obvious reason. I always think of the pasuk
讚讜专 讛讜诇讱 讜讚讜专 讘讗 讜讛讗专抓 诇注讜诇诐 注讜诪讚转 from kohelet.
B"h I have younger children and married children and grandchildren and as I get older, I think of our life cycle more and more. I feel such an incredible zechut that I was born Jewish.

Certain stories. Like Rabbi Chaim Shmulevitz, zt"l, seeing a pair of a baby's first shoes and being so moved by the thought of the mother's joy.
The famous story of Rabbi Grossman shlita of Migdal Ha'Emek and the army furlough (google it, it';s on Aish).

Kol Hanearim. Every single time.
Also Simchas Torah as they finish the Torah and say Chazak Chazak Vnischazeik.

Me too.
But actually I cry at the bedekin, not the chuppah. I have been to my husband鈥檚 coworker鈥檚 kid鈥檚 wedding where I have literally never met anyone-the only person I know is my DH (and I made fast acquaintances with another co-worker wife) and I still cry at the bedekin. What is going to happen at my kids鈥 wedding?

I'm Chabad and our minhag is that this is the only time when fathers bentch their children (as opposed to every Friday night) and yeah, it's really beautiful.

Same. My father only bentched me on Erev Yom Kippur. My father is now (ad 120) very old and cannot always remember the words and I live far away but I always end our pre-yom tov phone call with a request for a bracha and sometimes we say it together. Crying
