What is the Jewish doctrinal difference between an Idol housed in a temple and a grave housed in Mausoleum or Shrine with all or some of the following activities carried out by the visitors in both the cases towards the Object (Grave or Idol):
believe in one God of Moses and consider the Object or the dedicated person to be near to God.
revere the Object with clothes, flowers, incense, golden artifacts and enclosures to glorify it.
read some mantras from their religious scriptures in the vicinity of the Object.
Just clarified my question, stating further assumptions:
- Visitors believe that the object does NOT have power of its own in the same way a Hindu idol worshiper does not believe the idol to have any intrinsic power and is mere a center of focus
Visitors occasionally would also invoke the Object not necessarily at that place.
This question is based on my assumptions that Jewish texts allow constructions of buildings and shrines \ Tombs over the graves of pious people, if it does not allow then question would be re-framed.
