@Jake That is really a separate question. The details of this answer are essentially correct AFAICT. Perhaps it could be organized and presented better.

comment minhag means law? when in shulchan aruch

comment minhag means law? when in shulchan aruch
@hazoriz user6591 I think custom and law were being clearly contrasted in the question. Hence, law are things which are not determined by custom. Law may obligate me to not violate a custom, but when a custom changes the practical application does too. But no custom can allow eating pig, for instance.
