Unless you’re looking for a safe space for sniping, it’d be better to ask a Jew, don’t you think? While the o/p doesn’t give me much hope you’re looking for an answer rather than trying to reinforce an answer you’ve already adopted, there’s a place to find the answers you’re looking for, online, if you’re sincere.
Chabad is from the conservative side of the Jewish faith. I’ve spoken to a couple of their rabbis before, once about young earthism and once about the Levitical calls to execute homosexuals. These guys are sharp.
To my first questions, the rabbi answered that they distinguish between physical time and spiritual time, and their texts are describing the latter. I use that apologetic when talking to my students about exponential decay and dating methods to this day, because there’s always a proportion who find these studies difficult because of their religious beliefs.
I was motivated to ask about the latter because a poster on another board was openly advocating for following that law, to wit, giving a citation of the passage from Leviticus and the statement, “We should do this.” While horrified, I was hoping an argument against this from an original adherent devoted to the law would be useful. As it turned out, yes, the rabbi supported the law, but he added that there are a host of criteria that need to be satisfied before it can be carried out.
The rabbi immediately shot down my question asking if the instruction was contextual by saying they never question the “why” of anything in Jewish Law, because they don’t believe in looking for reasons not to obey their god. Absolutely seamless.
