When I asked a Jew about whether the new covenant made the old covenant obsolete, Here was his response.

"I will start with a verse "The law of the LORD is perfect, Restoring the soul. " Psalm 19:8
God law is perfect. Let me begin"
So why is there a contradiction you ask.

Where a new vs old concept maybe confused is in Jeremiah. The issue at hand is a discussion with the Jewish people. Let me explain by citing Jeremiah 31:31 claiming it speaks of a "New Covenant" that makes the covenant of Torah Law obsolete, As the New Testament says, "By calling the new covenant "new", He has made the first obsolete" " Hebrews 8:13 which you cited in your discussion raises this.

This claim that you say contradicts dozens of passages that say the commandments are eternal, For example, "The statutes, The ordinances, The law, And the commandment which He wrote for you, You shall be careful to observe forever. " " 2 Kings 17:37, And "He has commanded His covenant forever" " Psalm 111:9. God also promised He would never break His covenant with the Jews as it says, "I will not reject them or abhor them so as to destroy them completely, Breaking my covenant with them" " Leviticus 26:44. In context, Jeremiah 31 speaks of a new and improved covenant. In addition to not being broken by God, This covenant will no longer be broken by the Jewish people because, In the future messianic age, God will give the Jews a new heart, And they will no longer be tempted to transgress the commandments. (See Ezekiel 36:26-27)

In conclusion confounding terms in the word maybe where the confusion begins that is statutes, The ordinances, The law, And the commandment which He wrote for you, You shall be careful to observe forever. " " 2 Kings 17:37, And "He has commanded His covenant forever" " Psalm 111:9.

Very prophetic words I must say.
