QR–Cure–Quizzing Realms–481

Yo folks! Trying to start back again, after more than a year!

An easy one to get the ball rolling again:

Yom Kippur, or the Day of Atonement according to the part of the Bible that the Jewish people still follow, apparently had a strange tradition.

According to some scholars, an animal would be blamed for all the sins of the people, and these people would then throw the animal off the cliff.

What common English word is derived from this practice, which is believed to have been carried out to placate a wilderness demon called Azazel?

Happy quizzing, and have a nice life, folks!
