comment Why do we honor Gedalia, who was condemned for murder, with a fast day?
I would rather read that gemara as lav davka and not lose pshat in the psukim (see radak and particularly ibn ezra)

"during the Ten Days of Repentance" Moreover it was on Rosh Hashana!

??? A day of national mourning commemorating widespread destruction caused by my being an idiot is not my idea of getting a postmortem "honor".

@msh210 Such issues can possibly present problems for using the furniture on Shabbat and Yom Tov.

So he agrees that if "they are still in 'mint condition'" then it is acceptable

The gemara there says it applies to tzedaka. What do you think has changed such that it is no longer applicable?

comment Why is Vayelech read twice in a year?
Worth noting that the Haazinu song must be split into 6 aliyot, and that the text after the song cannot possibly be split into 14 aliyot. So you can't have any extra parshiyot there. If you want to read the Teshuva parts of Nitzavim before RH, then there is no other way to split up the parshas, other than 1 parsha before and after Haazinu. Moreover, the only way to combine the parshas (in a year where RH is on Thursday or Saturday) is to put Vayelech with Nitzavim because Haazinu has to stay separate so it can have its 6 aliya split.

@user3120 perhaps then you should include relevant citations to the shulchan aruch in your question

I meant your third point in the comment (that the text was canonized at some point). I think the premise is not sound, nor do I see how you think you have a text that is untampered with in order to revert to.

@user3120 Not everyone agrees to your third point. And Fred is right: there are many variations in the wording of just about all the blessings of shemoneh esrei.
