Weekly Parshat Answers:
All references are to the verses and Rashi's commentary, unless otherwise stated

   1. 35:1 - The day after Yom Kippur.
   2. 35:2 - To emphasize that the building of the Mishkan does not supersede the laws of Shabbat.
   3. 35:3 - There are two opinions: One opinion is to teach that igniting a fire on Shabbat is punishable by lashes as
       opposed to other "melachot" which are punishable by death. The other opinion is to teach that violation of
       numerous "melachot" at one time requires a separate atonement for each violation.
   4. 35:18 - The edges of the curtains were fastened to them. These were inserted in the ground so the curtains
       would not move in the wind.
   5. 35:19 - They covered the aron, the shulchan, the menorah, and the mizbachot when they were packed for
       transport.
   6. 35:26 - It was spun directly from off the backs of the goats.
   7. 35:27 - The Nesi'im reasoned that they would first let the people contribute materials needed for the Mishkan
       and then they would contribute what was lacking. The Torah shows its dissatisfaction by deleting a letter from
       their title.
   8. 35:30, 35:34 - Betzalel ben Uri from the tribe of Yehuda; Oholiav ben Achisamach from the tribe of Dan.
   9. 36:3 - Morning.
   10. 36:14 - It was made into curtains to be draped over the Mishkan
   11. 36:35 - Cherubim. (See Rashi 26:31)
   12. 37:1 - Because he dedicated himself to its building more than anyone else.
   13. 37:7 - On the two extremities of the kaporet (cover of the aron).
   14. 37:23 - Seven.
   15. 37:25,26 - Wood overlaid with gold.
   16. 38:1-2 - Wood overlaid with copper.
   17. 38:8 - These mirrors aided in the proliferation of the Jewish People. The Jewish women in Egypt would look in
       the mirrors so as to awaken the affections of their husbands who were exhausted by their slave labor.
   18. 38:8 - Its waters helped a woman accused of adultery to prove her innocence.
   19. 38:8 - To donate to the Mishkan.
   20. 38:20 - Copper.
