Message:  What is the deal with shaatnez testing? Is it a real requirement, or can you rely on the 'ingredients' printed on the suit labels. If it is a real phenomenon, what types of clothing does it apply to?

2) For sephardim, is it correct to say borei peri hagefen or hagafen?

3) Also for sephardim, is it correct to say shehakol nihiyAh bidvaro or shehakol nihiyEh bidvaro?

4) Do you have any recommendations about which nusach hatefillah is best for sephardim. I have always used the siddurim printed by talmidim of Rav Ovadiah Yosef.

Reply:  1) Hard to generalize. You need to talk to a Shaatnez person and confirm what types of clothing are prone to Shaatnez.
2) For Sephardim & Ashkenazim "Hagefen."
3) Nihyah
4) There all about the same...
