My favorite comment this week by Mrs. S: “The Sephardim follow the Shulchan Aruch (R’ Yosef Karo), who – in this case – follows the Ashkenazi Tosafot. Meanwhile, the Ashkenazim follow the Rama (R’ Moshe Isserles), who – in this case – follows the Rambam (Maimonides – not the Ramban (Nachmanides)). This is unusual, because in general, the Shulchan Aruch tends to follow the Rambam, and the Rama doesn’t.” Got that?
