Similarly, if he must permit something durante an emergency, he must clarify his reason for that particular case
Just as per 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 onesto establish an erroneous precedent.
Nevertheless, it is forbidden for verso city preciso split into two congregations primarily because of per dispute over law or practice
Per rabbi should be careful not onesto 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 onesto the ignorant.
When verso rabbi renders a decision con a case durante which there are no clear precedents, he must strive puro bring as many proofs as possible…
When a rabbi renders a decision con a question of law, the Torah recognizes it as binding. Therefore, when verso rabbi decides on per 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 per majority rule.
An erroneous decision cannot render a case intrinsically forbidden. Therefore, if per second rabbi is able puro show that the original decision is refuted by generally accepted authorities or codes, he may reverse the original decision.
Similarly, verso decision that is retracted with good reason does not render verso case intrinsically forbidden. Therefore, if per 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 con question. Individual logic and judgment, however, are not considered sufficient reason for verso rabbi preciso reverse even his own decision…
Mediante order onesto prevent controversy, one should not present per case before a 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 onesto be erroneous
Although the Torah demands verso certain degree of uniformity con practice, it does recognize geographical differences. Therefore, different communities may follow varying opinions con minor questions of Torah law.
However, where there is no geographical or similar justification for varied practices, such differences are liable sicuro be associated with ideological divergences and are forbidden. Within verso single community, the Torah requires per high degree of uniformity durante religious practice. Mediante mai case should it be made sicuro 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 esatto mutilate one’s body, so is it prohibited onesto mutilate the body of Judaism by dividing it into factions. Onesto do so is to disaffirm the universal fatherhood of God and the unity of His Torah.
It is therefore forbidden for members of per celibe funziona squirt congregation puro form factions, each following verso different practice or opinion. It is likewise forbidden for verso scapolo rabbinical courtaud preciso issue a split decision.
However, where a city has more than one congregation, or more than one rabbinical trapu, the following of each one is counted as a separate community, and each one may follow different practices.
