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 ?

comment Do all Yemenites study the trope for each weekly parsha?
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 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.

comment Does kri'at shmaʿ on its own require handwashing?
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.

comment Difference between Muskalot and Mefursamot?
@Micha Berger, I think you should expand your comment and post it as an answer. I guess, for me personally, the emphasis is on what faculty of the self apprehends the notion/idea. For mefursamot it is emotional (al-Harizi in his much easier/less accurate translation gives 'murgashot'). For muskalot it is the pure rational intellect.
