But i've never hear either iraqis or yemenis pronunce that final heh as 't' when not in 'smikhut'/construct state. how would you pronounce the word תורה , torat ?

I was curious about the way you spelled "parashat". I've heard lebanese christians pronounce <ta marbutah / final heh> that way, but never jews. is that a pronunciation you grew up with?

comment Source for the Baal Shem Tov's idea of seeing one's own flaw in others?
just re-reading the last paragraph of this now, I'm unsure of how to read the part about the torah scholar: are all scholars somehow said to be called shabbat? or did the particular person in the story have the given first name Shabbat (though I've never heard that as a name...maybe Shabtai?)

comment R Yonah's position about saying Hashkiveinu before nightfall
One possibility is that Hashkiveinu is contingent on the likely possibility of going to sleep in the immediate future. Even if twilight is not the common time of sleep, it does precede it.

comment Does kri'at shmaʿ on its own require handwashing?
Okay, thanks DoubleAA. I guess maybe the nos'ei keilim of the Rambam for the halakhah you referenced might have some more information.

DoubleAA, but that's a situation where you don't have water, and would have to spend time looking - what about the default situation where you're at home and have water available?

Okay. I will try to take out the environmental bit. I don't have a source for it, it was my own assumption.
