comment Why does Rashi say that a hey at the end = a lamed at the beginning so many times?
@DoubleAA I don't think that that would be a good source for the OP as this answer is not consistent with the Lubavitcher Rebbe's approach to Rashi; he learns (as explained in Klallei Rashi Chapter 7) that Rashi assumes the learner is studying in order. Regarding the end of that Rashi about agada, see Alex's comment here.

@DoubleAA The sefer כללי רש"י details the Lubavitcher Rebbe's approach to learning Rashi. In Chapter 3 he explains the idea that Rashi is geared to the level of a "ben chomesh l'mikra"; since the Torah is written in a style that is understood to a five year old, and Rashi's objective is explain the simple meaning of the Torah (see Rashi Breishis 3:8 for example), it follows his commentary is written for someone on such a level.

@DoubleAA I guess from Pirkey Avos "Ben Chamesh Lamikra"

@Ariel Though the Lubavitcher Rebbe also says that Rashi assumes the student to be learning Chumash in order

comment Halachic justification to not pray the amidah before zman t'filah?
@DoubleAA As far as I understand the Prisha is saying that tashlumim will only help for an onnes or mistake after micha but will count as "tfilla bizmana". However, if it was not an onnes and he davens after chatzos although he does not get "schar tefilla bizmana" he still gets "schar tefilla" and it is not considered a brocha levatola. Being that tefilla without kavana is batel, better to at least have "schar tefilla" then nothing at all.
