Is there a list anywhere of all the places standard orthodox Jews don't rule like Zohar? Ideally where nobody does like wait time between milk and meat. But if there are places where Chassidim and Yeshivish people don't rule like Zohar and Morden Orthodox do, that would also fulfill this inquiry.

Whenever discussions about Teffilin on chol hamoed come up, invariably someone will say 'well the Zohar was a Tanna and you can't argue on him".

Ignoring the silly nature of that statement for the moment, I would much rather present a list of places we don't rule like Zohar as response.

Does this exist?

  • Of course a list of places we do rule like Zohar would be shorter, but that isn't the point.

  • Ideally where nobody does like wait time between milk and meat. Some people indeed follow the Zohar in this regard, though maybe they all do it as a chumra rather than accepting it mei'ikar hadin.

  • Are you asking about only where theZohar is contradicted by other authoritative sources?

  • @Alex No. Standard practice against an explicit Zohar with no opposing opinion is fine too.

  • Perhaps judaism.stackexchange.com/q/62361/759 ? Any 'famous' Zohar position is probably famous exactly because certain groups have adopted it. Finding places where widespread Rishonic practice doesn't accord with the Zohar would be much easier.
