@msh210, Much, thanks.

Your comments later seem to contradict your stance in your question - that being that you are not aware of any other expression used for the same purpose. Maybe your question should be why this formulation of the words is used as one such expression, rather than why is this the expression used for this purpose?

comment When/where did the practice of “recycling” names begin?
Not really, if you think about it. There are 10 generations from Adam to Noah, with it happening twice in there, and 10 generations to Avraham. So you have it recorded 3 times among significant characters in the Torah in 20 generations. I know it doesn't sound like a lot, but these are just the examples the Torah records (and clearly not the main point of their respective stories).

comment May converts migrate to Israel?
@FastFurious, You'll have to contact the Jewish Agency or another intermediary (like Nefesh B'Nefesh) for that information.

comment Pirkei Avos on shabbos during mincha?
I know many people who do this individually, and virtually every Siddur I've ever seen has it printed there. Some shuls do it as a learning program, although I've never been to a shul that does it formally as part of the Tefillah.

Fast Furious, Please understand that the differences between the policies of the State of Israel and Jewish Law are many. It would really be beneficial for you to clarify your question. Who is the authority you are asking when you say "may migrate"?

comment How much is Classical Hebrew (in which the Hebrew Bible is written) is different from the modern Hebrew?
@jutky, there are redundant words, as has been pointed out. I hear what you are saying, but the language is confusing. There are, in fact, redundant words, which sparks questions by some, even many commentators, but there are, in fact, redundant words. I'd suggest more that the style of Biblical Hebrew is to write in a more compact and elegant way, but that is not necessarily a difference in the language.

comment Can an Alien convert to Judaism?
@yydl, I think your question is absurdly outside the scope of Mi Yodeya. I do not believe it has any actual merit on a site for genuine questions about Jewish Life and Learning. However, I was wrong to passive-aggressively mock your question on Meta, and I ask your forgiveness.
