Just as per rabbi may not permit that which is forbidden, so must he be careful not esatto forbid that which is permitted. Therefore, if a rabbi must forbid something merely because of a question of law, because of a custom, or because of special circumstances, he must state his reason so as not onesto establish an erroneous precedent.
Nevertheless, it is forbidden for verso city sicuro split into two congregations primarily because of verso dispute over law or practice
Per rabbi should be careful not puro 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 to erroneous conclusions. It is for this reason that there are cases which are permitted only per the case of verso scholar, and which may not be taught sicuro the ignorant.
When per rabbi renders verso decision durante a case mediante which there are mai clear precedents, he must strive esatto bring as many proofs as possible…
When verso rabbi renders verso decision con a question of law, the Torah recognizes it as binding. Therefore, when a rabbi decides on a case and forbids something, it becomes intrinsically forbidden.
Since the initial decision renders the subject of verso case intrinsically forbidden, it cannot be permitted even by verso greater sage or by a majority rule.
An erroneous decision cannot render per case intrinsically forbidden. Therefore, if a 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, a decision that is retracted with good reason does not render verso case intrinsically forbidden. Therefore, if verso second rabbi is able esatto determine that common practice traditionally opposes the initial ong authorities, he may convince the first rabbi sicuro retract his decision and permit the case sopra question. Individual logic and judgment, however, are not considered sufficient reason for per rabbi sicuro reverse even his own decision…
Per order preciso 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 preciso be erroneous
Although the Torah demands a un degree of uniformity in practice, it does recognize geographical differences. Therefore, different communities may follow varying opinions durante minor questions of Torah law.
However, where there is in nessun caso geographical or similar justification for varied practices, such differences are liable esatto be associated with ideological divergences and are forbidden. Within verso solo community, the Torah requires per high degree of uniformity per religious practice. Sopra 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 onesto mutilate one’s body, so is it prohibited esatto mutilate the body of Judaism by dividing it into factions. To do so is puro disaffirm the universal fatherhood of God and the unity of His Torah.
It is therefore forbidden for members of verso scapolo congregation puro form factions, each following per different practice or opinion. It is likewise forbidden for verso celibe rabbinical trapu onesto issue per split decision.
However, where a city has more than one congregation, or more than one rabbinical capable, the following of each one is counted as per separate community, and each one may follow different practices.
