Onkelos and real-Jonathan are authoritative in that they are the authorized versions for the Targum (formerly) read as part of the synagogue service.

@DoubleAA Onkelos and Jonathan are authoritative because the talmud says so. Pseudo-Jonathan is authoritative because it's printed in mikraos gedolos. It is printed in mikraos gedolos because it's authoritative, so go figure :)

If it helps, Rabbi Brody is a Breslover chosid and his shitah should probably taken in that light

comment What clothes do the members of Neturei Karta wear? Why?
At the time of the founding of Neturei Karta, Satmar wasn't chasidic either but now we're muddying the waters about what exactly a chosid is.

comment Are there any post-high school Israeli yeshiva programs that offer semicha “credits”?
I think eruvin is a separate bechina everywhere. My shabbos curriculum (R' Zalman Nechemia, never finished) didn't include eruvin either

@YEZ Is the mishna berurah test in addition to all the standard topics or does it substitute for some things like hilchos shabbos?

@YEZ, Not so sure. Most chasidim will tell you that levush is very much part of their Judaism. (And I say this as someone for whom clothing means very little religiously)
