It seems based upon my survey that the following hypothesis sums it up
It's all about one's "Comfort Zone"
Rabbis only deal with subjects within in their own comfort zones and zone out the rest!
And whatever is outside that zone - they go on to dismiss as being unimportant or trivial or a waste of time etc.
And what they DO deal with they consider THE most important things in the universe
<Tongue in Cheek>
So can you show me ONE rabbi - Just ONE rabbi - who fails these principles?
Stay tuned for Part 4
