Well, in my experience, all rabbi knows is how to answer without actually answering.

Sorry about your luck. The rabbis that have posted in this forum have answered that question repeatedly over the years. I didn't have any trouble understanding them, and I've not done any studying of Judaism since I'm not a Jew.

I see. If you can point me out to at least one of them, I'd appreciate it.

Do you have any particular post in mind?
Simply searching his name is not practical, obviously.

You sound like you would want a rabbi to take the time to explain each of those 613 commandments individually to you. I suppose that would comprise an entire topic of its own, if any rabbi here was inclined to take the time to school you.

However, I suspect that you may be dissatisfied with an explanation of just one commandment, let alone all 613.

Judaism requires education and independent thought. Ever hear the expression "Two Jews, three opinions"?
