Anyhow, even if Marc Shapiro was right, the Ran on Sanhedrin is still a Rishon.
It’s more than that. Even if Marc Shapiro is right, what he really means is that the ran is not the person who was called rabeinu nissim.
The ran is whomever wrote the peirush that we call the ran. It doesn’t really matter if he is the same rishon as rabbeinu nissim or another rishon, and it doesn’t matter if his name was nissim or charlie. It matters that he wrote the ran.
Correct. It does make a difference regard asking a stirah to a pirush known to be written by Rabbeinu Nissim, but regardless, it hasthe status of a Rishon.
We don’t need to know the name of the author to a pirush to accept it as a Rishon; we famously have the “Shittah Lo Nodah L’mi”.
Charlie, are you now paskening for Moslems too. Why are we the only ones who get to have a chumra of the month club?
Popa, if he was someone named Charlie he did not have the status of Rabbenu Nissim even if he was a talmid.
Yeah, I don’t know what’s gotten into popa. Now he’s saying the name Charlie was around in the time of the rishonim?
I assume if the goy follows the Sheva Mitzvos Bnei Noach, his tfillos will be answered more than a “frum” jew. Frum jews rarely keep the required number of mitzvos.
DY, actually it was around before. “Charlemagne” means “Charles the Great”. While one of the Baalei Tosefort is Rabbenu Peter I do not know of a Charlie.
