Torah Sh'Beal Peh || תּוֹרָה שֶׁבְּעַל פֶּה || Oral Torah

  • משה רבינו received every מצוה from Hashem with its explanation.
  • משה רבינו taught each פסוק and its oral explanation to the בני  ישראל.
  • Before משה רבינו’s death he reviewed all of it with בני ישראל.
  • He then wrote the תורה  on scrolls and gave a set to each שבט.
  • After משה died there were no disputes in the הלכה that he taught.
  • Things that משה didn’t give specific instructions for were resolved by using the י“ג מדות.
  • When there was a dispute in the application of the י“ג מדות the sages (חז''ל) followed the majority.
