by Joel Rich

In Shiurim L’zecher Aba Mori Z”L, R’YBS posits (see page 230) that in a difference of opinion concerning a Halacha Moshe Misinai, if one side has a kabbalah (tradition) and the other doesn’t, the decision is always in favor of the side with the tradition. [Me – assumption being a tradition must be correct and not a transmission error?] Whey then would we not apply the same logic with a Gzeira Shava (unless you assume there was not one where there was a clear tradition of which cases were related with which words?)?

Interesting fact—Roman case law (vs. statutory) was called responsa.
