Description

When communal statutes (Takkanot) are unclear, what modes of interpretation may be deployed to clarify them? Who has the right to interpret? What methods (reconstructing original intent, focusing on text, presuming an errant statute) may be used? What happens when the unclear statute cannot be clarified?
