Question
Why is adding additional customs and stringencies onto torah laws not considered adding to the laws?
Answer
Since the customs and stringencies are not accepted as Halachot from the Torah but only as stringencies. We are not saying that we have additional Mitzvot, we are only trying to perform the Mitzvot with more Hidur, it helps us keep away from what the Torah forbade. Rabbi Elad Gross
