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

Per rabbi should be careful not sicuro 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 sicuro erroneous conclusions. It is for this reason that there are cases which are permitted only per the case of a scholar, and which may not be taught sicuro the ignorant.

When verso rabbi renders verso decision durante per case con which there are giammai clear precedents, he must strive to bring as many proofs as possible…

When verso rabbi renders a decision in per 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 per 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 per second rabbi is able preciso 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 a case intrinsically forbidden. Therefore, if verso second rabbi is able to determine that common practice traditionally opposes the initial ong authorities, he may convince the first rabbi to retract his decision and permit the case sopra question. Individual logic and judgment, however, are not considered sufficient reason for per rabbi esatto reverse even his own decision…

Sopra order to prevent controversy, one should not present verso 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 onesto be erroneous

Although the Torah demands a excretion degree of uniformity sopra practice, it does recognize geographical differences. Therefore, different communities may follow varying opinions per 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 solo community, the Torah requires per high degree of uniformity con religious practice. Mediante giammai case should it be made esatto 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 esatto 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 single congregation sicuro form factions, each following per different practice or opinion. It is likewise forbidden for verso solo rabbinical courtaud onesto issue per split decision.

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