Neo-Karaism I is the original form of Halachah as prescribed by God in the Talmud! Neo-Karaite Judaism rejects later additions to the Talmud (Jewish Canon) such as the Rabbinic Oral Law [EG Shulchan Aruch] and places the ultimate responsibility of interpreting the Talmud on each individual. Neo-Karaism might not reject various Talmudical interpretations but rather holds every interpretation up to the same objective scrutiny regardless of its sourceOK - Neo-Karaism Ia is essentially similar to the above Namely There is ONE and ONLY one truth to be ferreted out from the Talmudic text using EG Philology instead of classic Posqim
Here is Ib
Neo-Karaism Ib is the original form of Halachah as prescribed by God in the Talmud! Neo-Karaite Judaism Ib rejects later additions to the Talmud (Jewish Canon) such as the Shulchan Aruch, and places the ultimate responsibility of interpreting the Talmud on each individual. Neo-Karaism Ib does not reject various Talmudical interpretations and nor does it reject Opinions within the Talmud itself - all recorded opinions and interpretations are equally valid. Therefore, there are no RULES of P'saq, just source materials one may use for P'saq
This school is quite liberal but also radical Throw out all Posqim and do not sort thru EG "Ya'al KaGam" - rather allow any Talmudic opinion as authoritative for Halachic purposes.
- There is NO post-Talmudic Halachah
- There is NO single Halachah in talmud rather there is unlimited elu v'elu within the "Sea of Talmud"
Admittedly, this school is not so much fundamentalisitc as it is simply anti-Traditional. Precedent and history play no role rather only the Rabbi who wields unlimited authority over the source material.
