comment How did Rambam eliminate “ben gilo” from the halacha?
@johny why - I don't think the discussion is one of justification for the act of visiting, but of the (metaphysical) results of such a visit, in discrete terms. Esoteric though it may be, this type of calculation should ideally remain separate from the person's motivation to visit.

comment words often mispronounced
Interesting points. But I don't understand the last one. What is the difference in meaning between "Hashem" and "Hasheim" (especially considering some don't differentiate in pronunciation between segol and tzere)?

comment If I wear a synthetic and/or mesh garment with Tzitzis, will I fulfill the mitzvah of Tzitzis?
Ben, your question would best be expressed as a comment on the original question, or possibly as a question in its own right if you provide more specific information about the sources to which you refer.

comment Why are angelic icons not prominent in Judaism?
Many take even more serious exception to the annual poetic prayer for rain that mentions (addresses?) the angel "Af B'ri". (Job 37:11 mechon-mamre.org/p/pt/pt2737.htm)

comment Are the Aramaic root ק.ב.ל and the Hebrew root ק.ב.ל related?
If I understand correctly, the original meaning of the root is "facing" and the others are derivatives?

comment Internal Passive With Characteristic “u” Vowel
@Andrew J. Brehm - Yes, it is the passive participle. Biblical Hebrew didn't have much in the way of actual adjectives. However, it functionally serves what English speakers would consider an adjectival role and in later Hebrews came to be used as such.
