... so you want to rewrite Judaism? Then how do you choose what to keep and what not to? Halachic responsa are being written all the time. It says in the Torah to where tefillin between your eyes... when you decide it's wrong that a woman isn't obligated to wear it, do you also decide it's wrong that we paint in black? How do you know that isn't wrong also? Without a mesorah going back to Mt. Sinai of how Judaism is practiced, you're just making up your own religion. If you think the mesorah is mistaken, okay, fine... make up your own religion that you like better, but don't call it Judaism and don't expect me to accept people that you 'convert' as Jews.
