Just as a rabbi may not permit that which is forbidden, so must he be careful not onesto forbid that which is permitted. Therefore, if per rabbi must forbid something merely because of verso question of law, because of per 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 puro split into two congregations primarily because of a dispute over law or practice

Per rabbi should be careful not to 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 in the case of a scholar, and which may not be taught sicuro the ignorant.

When per rabbi renders verso decision durante a case per which there are in nessun caso clear precedents, he must strive puro bring as many proofs as possible…

When a rabbi renders verso decision per 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 per greater sage or by per majority rule.

An erroneous decision cannot render per case intrinsically forbidden. Therefore, if verso second rabbi is able sicuro spettacolo 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 a second rabbi is able sicuro determine that common practice traditionally opposes the initial ong authorities, he may convince the first rabbi esatto retract his decision and permit the case per question. Individual logic and judgment, however, are not considered sufficient reason for verso rabbi puro reverse even his own decision…

Con order to prevent controversy, one should not present a 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 esatto be erroneous

Although the Torah demands a insecable degree of uniformity mediante practice, it does recognize geographical differences. Therefore, different communities may follow varying opinions con minor questions of Torah law.

However, where there is in nessun caso geographical or similar justification for varied practices, such differences are liable puro be associated with ideological divergences and are forbidden. Within a celibe community, the Torah requires per high degree of uniformity mediante religious practice. Mediante giammai 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 puro mutilate one’s body, so is it prohibited onesto mutilate the body of Judaism by dividing it into factions. Puro do so is sicuro disaffirm the universal fatherhood of God and the unity of His Torah.

It is therefore forbidden for members of per celibe congregation esatto form factions, each following per different practice or opinion. It is likewise forbidden for verso celibe rabbinical capable sicuro issue verso split decision.

However, where verso city has more than one congregation, or more than one rabbinical courtaud, the following of each one is counted as verso separate community, and each one may follow different practices.
