comment Why does the Yom Kippur service seem to reenact Abraham's treatment of his sons?
@IsaacMoses Yes! That's it! Yasher koach! How in the world did you come across that? (And I'm very impressed with your memory of this three-year-old question!)

comment Origin of the Ashkenazi Pronunciation?
I think you'll find that, just like all schemes of pronunciation, the two traditions have a common ancestor and the same amount of time evolving. Is this question about the "actual story" or how Ashkenazim consider it? It seems to be two different questions.

comment How do you pronounce numbers 248, 365, and 613 in the siddur?
Don't we say "Too BiShvat" and not "Tet vav BiShvat"? And "Lag B'omer", not "lamed gimel b'omer"?

comment Visiting sites previously used for idol worship
This only answers part of the question - if the idol were in ruins. What if, for instance, the idol is well-preserved, but the religion that considers that idol holy has no more adherents?
