The Superiority of Rabbinic Laws Over Torah Laws - Part 4: Answers
Show Notes

This morning (3/25/22), in our "Machshavah Lab" series for women, we concluded our series on the question, "How should we relate to Rabbinic laws vs. Torah laws?" After a quick review of the Ran's answer, we learned whatever we were able to learn from the Ran's three counterarguments to the question he raised, followed by the answer he cited in the name of Rabbeinu Yonah. We concluded the shiur with a summary of the three-part answer to our original question. Although there is undoubtedly more to be gained from the Ran's drashah, I'm happy with the ideas we managed to glean!
