In memory of Rabbi Levi Yitzchok ben R' Zalman Yuda Deitsch OBM
When Moshe ascended to receive the Torah, for every matter G-d told Moshe 49 reasons to render impure and 49 reasons to render pure. Moshe asked, “Master of the World, how will I clarify these matters?” G-d answered, “Follow the majority.”
The way the Torah exists above, in G-d’s wisdom, there is room for many conflicting opinions at once—and all of them are true. Now, we can only see the truth of one way at a time, and so we all must follow the majority. When Moshiach comes, we will begin to understand the Torah as it is above, and see the truth of all of the opinions. This will allow far greater variation and flexibility, because we will be able to apply the law more precisely to each person’s current situation.
Often, we must often defer an expert’s opinion, or accept a best practice based on the common good. But when Moshiach comes, everyone will be expert enough in Torah to apply it best to his unique situation. Even now, however, we must not rely only on asking our rabbi. Each of us must strive to learn and understand the Torah so that we can apply its lessons to even the most subtle and individual aspects of our lives.
