comment A word seems to be written in an unusual way in Psalm 60,2
I second @GeminiMan's comment — I checked every TaNaKh I have on paper and online and all of them had the final mem. I suspect this is a typesetting error.

@NoachmiFrankfurt the story you're thinking of must surely be from this blog: lavlor.blogspot.ca/2013/05/auction-sefer-torah.html

comment What is the difference between sephardi and ashkenazi rituals?
we independently wrote essentially the same thing! it's almost impossible to say anything this general, especially since the "ashkenazi-sephardi" binary is too simplistic to be useful. :)

comment Peh at the end of a word
Wow! A new fact to add to my Biblical trivia. It's more common with kaf (e.g. וַיֵּֽבְךְּ + inflected forms), and of course happens with tav all the time (e.g. אָתְּ and associated verb forms). The only word I know with final dalet degusha is the plant נֵרְדְּ in Shir haShirim. It doesn't happen (to my knowledge) with bet or gimmel.

comment What are the symbols of the 12 tribes?
Maybe... Or maybe that interpretation of halakha was developed later. Or maybe the midrashic imagination is not concerned with halakha. There are many possibilities here. ;)

Great — thanks!! That's exactly the kind of answer my friend's looking for, I think. I'd love to see other examples.
