comment Why does Rashi sometimes quote משה הדרשן
What is the question exactly? Is it "why does Rash"i deviate from p'shat if he states that he only does so to bolster the p'shat?" Or is it "how could someone with the root ד.ר.ש in his name explain p'shat?"?

comment Source for the quotation, “More than Jews have kept the sabbath…”
@DoubleAA Somehow, genrewise I assumed those to not be the case. Looks like I was on the money! Did you assume this was a talmudic or Maimonidean quotation before you saw its source?

OK, but likely not to the author.

comment Tallit pattern archive
I don't know anything about talis manufacture, but I remember reading a few years ago that all talisos with the "checkerboard" pattern are produced in Turkey.
