I have a version of the Bracha for Sefirot HaOmer.
It has Hay Yud in place of Adonai.
It has E-LoKEInu in place of EloHEInu.
Because of these replacements, the paper does not have
to be buried since it does not contain the name of G-d.
Could you explain these two replacement words
and why neither is the name of G-d?
How does one pronounce Hay Yud?
Are these replacement words only for writing purposes?
Am I correct that I would still say Adonai and Eloheinu during my recitation?
How could a building like the Mishkan or the Beit HaMikdash, or a natural phenomenon like a cloud (at Har Sinai) contain the Presence of the Almighty (Ubiquitous, the infinite volume; omnipotent; omnipresent; omniscient etc. G-d)?
1 Kings 8:12-13; Schneerson: “With the commandment to erect a Sanctuary, G-d gave the promise ‘I will dwell within’. That promise was fulfilled with the manifestation of G-d's Presence in the Sanctuary. The Divine Presence within our material world. [I.e. His immanent presence, rather than יהוה Himself see 1 Kings 8:27].
Idolatry is the most condemned act in the Torah. What makes idolatry a more serious offense than murder? What makes it so believing an inanimate object has spiritual powers is a worse sin than irreversibly ending another person’s life? Obviously one can reverse the damage of praying to a piece of metal or stone made into a certain shape. But no one can ever undo taking away another’s life.
