comment facing east in the bes hamikdash
Only because of kol pinos she'ata poneh..., which I was under the impression applied there. That is the part I don't have a written source for.

comment facing east in the bes hamikdash
It is brought down somewhere that in all of his circuits of the mizbe'ach he only made right turns. For the two sprinklings on four corners the mishna says he started in the SE and ended in the SW, so it must be that he was walking sideways around it, with his right shoulder leading his left one. This would necessitate sometimes having the kodesh hakodshim to his back. But while on the mizbe'ach might not count and I don't have a source.

comment How to increase the demand for kosher food?
...However, the title is misleading since the question does not mention any acceptability judgment about Hartfordians' practice.

comment How to increase the demand for kosher food?
@jake - I think it is certainly a question about Jewish life. It is a question of believers in Judaism matching practice to their belief. It could be a question about adult education or motivation.

comment Do Jewish people keep a Bible or other scripture in their homes?
I think xiaohouzi79 was referring to the Christian Bible. Otherwise why would there be reason to think there is a problem for a Jew to keep one around?

comment Bending at “s'lach lanu”
I was assuming the same and ascribing that logic to the people I've seen doing it. I just have never seen or heard it mentioned as an actual minhag.
