Chabad loves the Rambam. This ‘halaka’ from the Rambam comes from the Gemara quoted, which teaches Aggaditah. Among the Reshonim scholars (peers of Rambam), the Rambam stands alone whereby he ruled a posok halaka from Aggadic sources! In matters of halaka, the general rule follows like this: individual vs. the majority … the halaka follows after the majority.
Chabad which promoted for years their Rebbe false messiah, likewise advertises the Rambam “halaka” known as 7 mitzvot bnai Noach. A load of narishkeit. Why? Rabbi Akiva passed down a kabbala unto his five major talmidim/rabbis [these rabbis transmitted the Talmud as we know it today], a kabbala known as “פרדס”/Chariot mysticism. Rabbi Yechuda the Prince/leader of the Great Sanhedrin\, employed the “פרדס” kabbalah in ALL his Case/Rule Mishnaot. Likewise the Gemara makes its famous Case/Rule analysis by bringing possible precedents [the יסוד of all Common Law systems of law].
To bring a similar case, from the 6 Orders of the Mishna, to make a depth analysis of the Case/Rule as stated in a specific Mishna, requires logic. Order vs. Chaos … logic requires order. Oral Torah most essentially constitutes the expression of Oral Torah logic. A unique logic format totally different from ancient Greek philosophers whose opposing system of logic Plato and Aristotle communicated.
As a loom has its warp and weft opposing threads, so too the fabric of the Talmud holds to contrasting “threads”, known as halaka and aggadita. The halakic code which the Rambam compiled destroyed the halakic “fabric” produced from the halaka/aggadita “loom”. How? Rambam ripped the halakic Talmudic Primary Sources [the later commentators on the Talmud, collectively known as “Reshonim”, Jewish scholarship roughly from 950 CE unto Josef Karo – the 1st generation of “Auchronim” scholarship on the Talmud and Halaka], away from the Aggadic T’NaCH mussar. The Talmud, compiled centuries after the Romans forcibly exiled almost all Jewry from Judea. The Aggadita by means of דרוש examines the pre first Temple and first Temple Torah scholarship, as recorded in the T’NaCH], apart from the aggadic mussar Primary Sources.
Chabad erroneously claims that rabbi Karo based his halakic rulings, as codified in the Shulchan Aruch, that he followed the majority opinions expressed by the 3 famous Reshon halakic codifiers – the Rif, the Rosh, and the Rambam. Utter superstitious narishkeit. Rabbi Karo’s famous code exists as the “Cliff Notes” of his primary commentary, he wrote upon the Arba’ah Turim, the בית יוסף. Written by Jacob ben Asher the son of the Rosh. The Rosh denounced the Rambam as false. Rabbi Asher abandoned the “sh’itta” of how his father learned the definition of halaka from the Talmud, and wrote his now famous Arba’ah Turim, based upon the Rambam “sh’itta” which destroyed the warp/weft/loom “fabric” of the Talmud!
The Rambam did not know, much less understand the פרדס kabbala of Rabbi Akiva. His code of law “organized” halaka into subjects. This “alien” imposed Order upon halakic subjects within the pages of the Talmud, directly comparable to the Xtian verses and chapters imposed upon the T’NaCH, effectively changed the essences of the Talmudic concept known as halaka! Something like rearranging the letters of D O G & G O D. The Talmudic warp/weft fabric, as expressed through the kabbala of פרדס scholarship … דרוש ופשט a female/male couple. And רמז וסוד a female/male couple.
The halakic rulings as found in the B’hag, Rif, Rosh legal codifications sharply contrasts with the ALL halakic rulings located within the Rambam legal codification. The latter code completely redefines the meaning of the term halaka. The warp/weft opposing/contrasting threads in the Talmudic loom, Aggadita requires דרוש\פשט, whereas Halaka requires רמז\סוד. The framers of the Talmud based the entire work of Mishna and Gemara upon the פרדס kabbala taught by Rabbi Akiva.
The Rambam code radically altered the meaning and k’vanna of all halakic rulings as found within the pages of the Talmud. For this reason Rabbeinu Yona, the cousin of the Ramban, the chief rabbi of Spain, placed the Rambam into נדוי/charem – about 15 years after the Rambam died.
Have you ever wandered how millions of Yidden settled in Eastern Europe, Poland, the Ukraine, and Russia? What caused a huge population transfer of Jews living in Western Europe to uproot their lives and move to Eastern Europe? Oppression, chaos, and social anarchy prevailed in Jewish communities after the Rambam code passed from Egypt to Spain, to Western Europe. A little known fact, the Baali Tosafot, grand children of Rashi, their famous commentaries upon the Talmud, the Baali Tosafot quote the Rambam on matters of halaka, all of 2 times! In both cases the Tosafot argued against the Rambam.
About 60 years after the Goyim burned all the Talmudic handwritten manuscripts of the Talmud in Paris 1242, the king of France expelled all Jews from France – this permanently destroyed the Rashi/Tosafot sh’itta how to learn Talmud. Have you ever wandered how Rashi could employ one sh’itta of פשט, how he learned the Chumash, and an entirely different sh’itta of פשט in how he learned the Talmud? Till Rashi, no scholar from either the sealed masoret of Mishna and Gemara ever learned by employing two different logic methodologies/sh’ittot!! How could a later secondary source ie Rashi, employ two opposing schools of פשט when no rabbinic authority within the Mishna and Gemara ever learned through such a strange/foreign sh’itta/method?!
Rashi has a simple set of reasoning, not so the Rambam. The disaster of the 1st Crusades would explode upon Western European g’lut Jewry at the end of the lifetime of Rashi. The Church, in the best of times, barely tolerated Jewish religious freedom, which Church dogma called ‘Free Will’. But the latter days of Rashi’s life witnessed the worst of times in Jewish refugee relations with Goyim authorities! Jewish scholarship on the Talmud had to write in a manner, by which they hoped to get the Goyim censors to permit public publication of their commentaries made upon the Talmud.
The Crusades would obliterate virtually all major exile Jewish communities across Germany. The Friars and Monks deeply despised the Talmud. Rashi’s commentary to the Chumash taught the פרדס kabbala of דרוש\פשט. The Rashi commentary to the Talmud taught a simple פשט to young Yidden, on how to correctly read a page of Gemara. Most people erroneously separate the פשט learning on the Chumash from the פשט learning on the Talmud. The Talmud, not easy to learn to read. Besides mixtures of Hebrew and Aramaic, it employs a warp\weft fabric of halaka\aggadita.
The classic Talmudic halakic commentaries prior to publishment of the Rambam “counter” halaka, the B’hag, Rif, Rosh halakic commentaries, their halakic rulings bound themselves to the pages of the Sha’s (6 Orders of the Mishna – a name that refers to the entire works of the Talmud). פרדס kabbala weaves aggadita together with halaka; the one cannot exist without the other. Contrast the Rambam code whereby the halaka stands completely independent from the aggadita of the Talmud!!
Under the Rambam notion, halaka stands alone and independent from aggadita. This opinion, due to its gross ignorance of the kabbala of פרדס, transmitted to all the rabbis within the pages of both Mishna and Gemara! Most of Spain’s rabbinic authorities of the Rambam’s day, assimilated and embraced the rediscovered ancient Greek philosophies. Published after Muslim armies invaded and conquered most of Spain.
Over a 1000 years before the Reshonim scholarship upon the Talmud, Jews rebelled against the Syrian Greeks and won Jewish national Independence for the first time since the fall of Jerusalem to Babylon. At that time, like the assimilated Spanish rabbinic authorities, the Tzeddukim sons of Aaron, they too assimilated and embraced the culture and customs of Greek Syria. They wanted Jerusalem to follow the model of a Greek polis City State. The assimilated Tzeddukim embraced and accepted ancient Greek philosophy, specifically the Greek concepts of logic taught by Plato and Aristotle.
After the burning of the Talmud in Paris in 1242, thereafter appeared the Zohar. This work the kabbalist, the Ramban had never seen. The Zohar makes claims to the penmanship of rabbi Shimon bar Yochai. Also known by his acronym Rashbi. A 2nd-century tannaitic scholar, active after the destruction of the Second Temple in 70 CE. One of the most eminent disciples of Rabbi Akiva, and attributed by many Orthodox Jews with the authorship of the Zohar, the chief work of Kabbalah. This narishkeit fails to grasp that the Zohar midrashic style commentary to the Chumash – does not teach פרדס. Therefore Shimon bar Yochai simply could not have authored the Zohar.
The Rambam did not write the Zohar, but a theory of his authorship of the Zohar makes far better sense than that of bar Yochai! The latter understood the discipline of פרדס scholarship whereas the former did not understand פרדס scholarship at all. The Rambam code, organized halaka into neat tidy subjects; this code stands upon Aristotelian logic. The Perushim placed the assimilated Cohonim Tzeddukim into נדוי\charem. How could assimilated Tzeddukim receive the classification of רשעים while assimilated Spanish rabbinic authorities, like the Rambam, enjoy the legal status as Tzaddikim? 180 decree polar opposites! The lights of Hanukkah dedicate the commitment to HaShem to only interpret the Written Torah by and through Oral Torah (פרדס) logic.
The Rambam interprets both Chumash and Talmud relying upon ancient Greek logic, the same logic format that significantly contributed to the blessing after meals description of רשעים who sought to cause Israel to forget the Torah. Which Torah? Not the Written Torah but rather the Oral Torah logic system revealed to Moshe at Horev 40 days following the sin of the Golden Calf on Yom Kippor. The first face of avoda zara – assimilation. Expressed in the non specific commandments – after the ways of Egypt and Canaan, do not follow. These non specific commandments forbade assimilation to all foreign non Cohen cultures and customs, not just limited to ancient Egyptian and Canaanite cultures and customs.
Assimilation to alien foreign cultures and customs represents a fundamental aspect of the tuma Evil inclination within the bnai brit hearts. The first word of the Torah בראשית contains a powerful רמז\words within words – ב’ ראשית \ two beginnings; two Creation stories, and two Yatzirot within the heart. The word Canaanite refers to a merchant or trader. The Talmud in בבא קמא refers to Canaanites as stateless refugees temporarily living within the borders of Judea. By comparison, post war Confederate states called Canaanites – carpetbaggers. The 5th Book of the Torah acknowledges two types of Goyim living within the jurisdiction of the Great and small Sanhedrin Federal Courts: ger toshav and na’cra’im/Canaanites.
The famous Aggadita of the Gemara of Sanhedrin refers to Gere Toshav folk. Keepers of the 7 mitzvot within the borders of Judea, if they suffered damages by an Israel, they could take the Israel to court and demand restitution for damages. The Na’cree/Canaanite stateless refugee enjoyed no such rights. If the ox of an Israel damaged the ox of a Na’cree/Canaanite, the Israel enjoyed legal exemption from paying damages to any foreign refugee temporarily residing within the borders of Judea! Stateless refugee Jewish population by comparison, likewise enjoyed little or no legal rights throughout the entire 2000+ years of g’lut.
No Great Sanhedrin possess jurisdiction to try Capital Crimes murder cases outside of Judea. The error of Rambam’s Greek logic, his halaka attempts to impose the 7 mitzvot upon all Goyim. Rubbish. No Sanhedrin court has jurisdiction to try a bnai noach living in foreign countries with the threat of imposing death penalty, for any bnai noach Goy who violates one of the 7 mitzvot.
Herein touches the two fundamental errors that brought g’lut upon Israel. King Shlomo failed to consult with Natan the prophet concerning construction of the Temple. Post second Temple period Jews assume that the definition of halaka, that all the halakic codes follow the same definition. The first error, king Shlomo aggrandized building a structure of wood and stone, rather than taking the mussar given by Yitro to Moshe, of the need to establish a Federal Sanhedrin Court System as the Temple. The 2nd error, Jewish rabbinic leadership failed to grasp the fundamental distinctions between the Talmudic פרדס definition of halaka from assimilated Rambam, and his Greek definition of halaka.
