  9. It is vital to remember, that the Bible reveals G-d’s sentiment on this issue. Once a covenant is voluntarily entered into, it is a serious infraction of G-d’s mitzvah to seek a unilaterally abrogation. Therefore, one is not to break this covenant without first seeking the LORD’s direction, with confirmation from another objective believer. Every reasonable and honest attempt should be made to secure the blessing of Beth Simcha’s Rabbi before dissolution of this covenant. The unity of the Mishpocha is always a crucial objective.
  10. Attempt to resolve all internal differences with Messiah’s love according to the (Rabbi’s/Leadership) understanding of Mt. 18:15-20.
