    Kudos to Kiruvwife for the idea.

    Lets get started:

    Out of all of the Pesukim in Tanach, only 24 have neither a Vav, nor a Yud.

    Which one of the pesukim (without a Vav and without a Yud) appears the most?

    #1106470

    Trivia question #2 Where can you find a proof in the pesukim in Tanach that Klal Yisroel spoke their own language in Galus.

    wow! Thanks so much JayMatt! Ok got to get thinking…….

    JayMatt, thanks for starting the thread. I have one objection, though. I understand why you chose the name “Tanach Trivia”, but it bothers me because nothing in Tanach is trivial. Would it be possible to rename the thread?

    Both questions have me stumped.

    I’m not sure who makes the titles, but how about Torah Quiz-(this thread idea I took from one of “anon’s” questions on a previous thread.)

    Still Shabbos in NY, and more posts are coming onto the site…AND THE NAME OF THIS TOPIC HAS BEEN CHANGED!!

    Which Mod? Where is that Mod?

    Anyway kiruvwife asked: Name all the hints related to Purim in the Torah.

    doing this without looking it up, so please go easy.

    Esther: Anochi Haster astir panim

    Mordechai: Mor Dror (one of the spices)

    Haman: Ha Min Ha eitz

    jaymatt-yes-those are the hunts I know of-not sure if there are others.

    A couple more: Who killed more people on one day than in his whole life?

    kilav! i think that’s what his name was.

    c’mon. Nobody knows my opening question about the pessukim? Do I need to supply a hint.

    By thw way, kiruvwife, “Who killed more people on one day than in his whole life?” this is a bad question. Anyone who killed just 1 person could have this apply to them. However, I do get what you are trying to ask, and the answer is “Shimshon”

    #1106490

    kiruvwife: pinchas? (i think thats his name. the one who they say might be eliyahu hanavi)

    and who killed more people in one day then his whole life? shimshon when he destroyed that building

    #1106492

    DAvid S- I was not thinking of something in Daniel

    moish01-impressive!

    Jaymatt-yes, a hint please-and I’ll try to keep my questioning to fit a “nice” criteria.

    aussie,and jaymatt-yes shimshon.

    As for my initial question, here is the hint. There are 24 persukim in tanach without a Vav or a Yud. Which one out of the 24 appear the most (hint, it appears 12 times!)

    c’mon, Its too soon to give up. and it is definitely too soon for me to give the answer.

    kiruvwife: im going to go with 10. (whenever the torah lists generations it often seems to list ten)
