comment How can one stay out of Israel?
Re: Baal Te'acher, so come a week early. If you are talking about someone who is potur from Aliya LeRegel (which is not at all obvious that this excludes everyone who lives outside E.Y., but there are such opinions) then they are potur from Baal Te'acher as well (Rosh Hashana 6b near the bottom).

comment Do Jews pray to deceased forefathers?
A lot of downvotes on the answers, but no one seems to want to write an answer promoting the contrary opinion ... To downvoters - if you want to downvote, how about actually writing an answer that supports a contrary opinion?

@MattGutting, see, that would go to far in Judaism. At most you would ask that they ask G-d for some good outcome.
