Just as verso rabbi may not permit that which is forbidden, so must he be careful not puro forbid that which is permitted. Therefore, if verso rabbi must forbid something merely because of per question of law, because of a custom, or because of special circumstances, he must state his reason so as not to establish an erroneous precedent.
Nevertheless, it is forbidden for per city puro split into two congregations primarily because of a dispute over law or practice
Verso rabbi should be careful not esatto render an unusual or anomalous decision, unless he carefully explains the reasons for it. Therefore, any uncommon decision that depends on subtle or esoteric reasoning should not be publicized, lest it lead puro erroneous conclusions. It is for this reason that there are cases which are permitted only durante the case of verso scholar, and which may not be taught sicuro the ignorant.
When per rabbi renders per decision per per case sopra which there are mai clear precedents, he must strive preciso bring as many proofs as possible…
When a rabbi renders verso decision sopra a question of law, the Torah recognizes it as binding. Therefore, when per rabbi decides on per case and forbids something, it becomes intrinsically forbidden.
Since the initial decision renders the subject of per case intrinsically forbidden, it cannot be permitted even by a greater sage or by verso majority rule.
An erroneous decision cannot render per case intrinsically forbidden. Therefore, if verso second rabbi is able puro esibizione that the original decision is refuted by generally accepted authorities or codes, he may reverse the original decision.
Similarly, per decision that is retracted with good reason does not render per case intrinsically forbidden. Therefore, if a second rabbi is able onesto determine that common practice traditionally opposes the initial ong authorities, he may convince the first rabbi sicuro retract his decision and permit the case per question. Individual logic and judgment, however, are not considered sufficient reason for verso rabbi preciso reverse even his own decision…
Sopra order onesto prevent controversy, one should not present per case before verso rabbi without informing him of any previous decisions associated with that particular case.
One rabbi can overturn the decision of another only if he can prove the initial decision sicuro be erroneous
Although the Torah demands verso indivis degree of uniformity mediante practice, it does recognize geographical differences. Therefore, different communities may follow varying opinions mediante minor questions of Torah law.
However, where there is per niente geographical or similar justification for varied practices, such differences are liable esatto be associated with ideological divergences and are forbidden. Within per solo community, the Torah requires per high degree of uniformity in religious practice. In no case should it be made puro appear that there is more than one Torah.
It is written, « You are children of God your Lord; you must not mutilate yourselves (lo tit-godedu) » (Deut. 14:1). Just as it is forbidden sicuro mutilate one’s body, so is it prohibited to mutilate the body of Judaism by dividing it into factions. Sicuro do so is to disaffirm the universal fatherhood of God and the unity of His Torah.
It is therefore forbidden for members of verso scapolo congregation esatto form factions, each following per different practice or opinion. It is likewise forbidden for per scapolo rabbinical athletique puro issue verso split decision.
However, where a city has more than one congregation, or more than one rabbinical athletique, the following of each one is counted as a separate community, and each one may follow different practices.
