Both Talmuds as a rule enumerate only seven sorts of Pharisees
(T. Yerush, Berachoth, fol. 13, Soteh, fol. 20, T. Babli, fol.
22, col. 2, and elsewhere); but Rabbi Nathan, as above, adds a
new species to the genus. The freehand sketches of Pharisees
given in the Talmud are the reverse of complimentary. In the
words of the late E. Deutsch, who was a Talmudist of no mean
repute, "the Talmud inveighs even more bitterly and caustically
than the New Testament against what it calls the plague of
Pharisaism, 'the dyed ones,' 'who do evil deeds like Zimri, and
require a goodly reward like Phinehas,' 'they who preach
beautifully, but do not act beautifully.' Parodying their
exaggerated logical arrangements, their scrupulous divisions and
subdivisions, the Talmud distinguishes seven classes of
Pharisees, one of whom only is worthy of that name. The real and
only Pharisee is he 'who does the will of his Father which is in
heaven because he loves Him.'"
He who neglects to wear phylacteries transgresseth eight commandments.
