From Sinai to Ethiopia
Although I don’t mean to disappoint Sharon, after reading this section I am convinced that Ethiopian halacha will never be accepted in the halachic community, and indeed there is no room for it. I say this based on the fact that Ethiopian halacha rejects Talmudic authority making it Karaitic in nature. While I am open to alternative halachic systems (for example, complete reliance on the Rambam as per the Yemenite tradition), there is no room for a halachic system that rejects Talmudic authority. So too, and perhaps even more significantly so, is that Ethiopian halacha gives equal weight to all texts, meaning, that the Torah is no more authoritative than any other Deuterocanonical or Apocryphal work!
