Description

A brief note: If lifnim mishurat hadin is so important, why doesn't the Torah spell out instructions for executing it? Three approaches, two of which related to developing a personal moral compass. But if so, then why does Hashem override our personal moral compass, as at the Akeidah? Rav Aharon Lichtenstein's prioritization of frumkeit over goodness, despite the need for both.
