1) It may be important for me to clarify that the distinction in our relationship to Biblical law and Rabbinic law may not really be as heavy as I present in the Insight. It was presented that way in order to clarify the point and to emphasize a difference in nature that is often overlooked. The call of na'aseh v'nishma indeed permeates the entire system of Torah law. We are expected to follow Rabbinic enactments even as we do not understand them and the observance of Torah laws is also enhanced with understanding (that is actually the call of nishma). The difference in what is to exist in regard to our relationship to Biblical and Rabbinic laws is, as such, somewhat slight. But, nonetheless it still exists -- and this presentation was the purpose of this Insight.
