Avot de R. Reuven - Three Pillars of Pharisaism

There are three pillars of upon which Pharisaism stands

1. Pietism - K'doshim Tihyu, P'rushim Tihyu

2. Traditionalism - Sh'al Avicha v'Yageid'cha*

3. Textual Liberalism - Z'keinecha v'Yom'ru Lach **


* what previous generations say [M'sorah] counts

** Oral Teachings of the Z'keinim are more important than what's written there.
