comment What is the Arizal's full name
5 seconds on Wikipedia tells me his dad's name was Shelomo. Did you try searching for this at all? What did you find?

comment Should Ashkenazim say 'מוריד הטל' in Israel?
@Maimonist Do you only say Morid HaGeshem when it rains? Do you say Morid HaSleet when it sleets? Why are you making up oversimplifications of Halacha that have no basis in traditional texts?

Right. It gives a different way of viewing the archeological evidence

Tanakh already tells us that many Jews in ancient Israel were polytheists. Big whoop.

comment Is a person allowed to wear tefillin during Tish'a B'Av Shacaharit if he won't be able to daven mincha that day?
@NoachmiFrankfurt The Gra put them on right after Kinnot even before Chatzot (Maaseh Rav 200) and the Beer Heitev (555) quotes rabbis who would wear them and say Kriat Shema before going to Shul for Shacharit. Many Israeli Sefardim wear them at Shacharit until just before Kinot (see Sefer Eretz Yisrael of RYMT).

What is "in this case"? Do you mean only in Israel? All Ashkenazim? I don't really understand your question. Please edit to clarify

Not everyone doesn't wear Tefillin Tisha B'Av morning, fwiw, and those that don't are just following a custom, so seemingly he should wear them at some point after dawn before surgery.

What reason would they have for asking for annulment?

I don't see how this answers the question. Did you mean this as a comment?

Why would it need to be kashered?

comment Before or during Jesus's time, what other notable Jews claimed to be or hinted at being the Messiah?
Note that Jewish records don't record the details of most of these people (as with most other 'crazies'). Only ones that had significant historical impact (such as Jesus or Shabbetai Tzevi) are likely to be recorded.

Maybe try wearing someone else's tefillin first to see if it's just your pair?
