    Chanie: I assume he started a year before Yetziyas Mitzrayim at the Sneh. I don’t think we know when that was, so I’m assuming it was around when the Makkos started which according to I believe a Rashi Al Hatorah is 1 year before they left. From Yetziyas Mitzrayim to Chet Ham’raglim is 17 months (one year+5 months until Av). Then there are 6 more months from Av in the final year until Adar. What did you do differently?

    Sam2; I calculated from Yetziyas Mitzrayim to Chet Haeigel, which was much earlier, where Hashem tells Moshe, ?? ??.

    Chanie: Ah. K’lal Yisroel weren’t Niduyin Lashamayim yet then so I assumed he still kept full Nevuah until the Meraglim.

    “My intention was not to Chas V’sholom belittle”

    That much is clear, hence the “Could you please rephrase that question?”

    “Who was Lapidos?”

    Devorah’s husband (Shoftim 4:4) who had 3 names:

    Barak, Michoel, and Lapidos (Yalkut Shimoni Shoftim 42)

    Good job bekitzur. Although for badan I had in mind shimshon. Here are a few more Q’s:

    1) Which 2 people in the Torah wore a scarf?

    2) 2 times when “chalon” (window) is mentioned in the torah; and at least 2 women who looked out a window in navvim rishonim?

    3) 4 times (different accounts) that a “nachash” (snake) is mentioned in the torah.

    #1217447

    samhachaim:

    1. Rivka and Tamar

    2. Noach sent the raven/dove out of the window. Avimelech saw Yitzchak “m’tzachek et ishto” through the window. The two women in Nach who looked out the window are the mother of Sisra, and Michal, the daughter of Shaul

    3. The story of the Nachash and Adam and Chava

    The story of the N’chasim that were sent after B’nei Yisrael complained about water and food. Moshe made a Nachash N’choshet (B’midbar 21:5-10).

    Moshe describes to B’nei Yisrael how Hashem led them through the midbar filled with snakes (D’varim 8:15)

    Dan, in Birkat Yaakov is described as a “nachash” (B’reishit 49:17)

    And then of course “Nachash” in its other meaning (divination) is used many times in Torah (for instance ini Bircat Bil’am (B’midbar 23:23) and the general prohibitions against “nachash”, “kosem”, etc )

    Now if you want to go into Nach, there was a King of Ammon named “Nachash”…

    Impressive!! Here a few more fun ones.

    1) Which 2 biblical personalities in the torah (not nach) are referred to as a “zonah” (not necessarily were zonahs)?

    2) Which 3 people in the torah lived 137 years?

    3) Find 3 of the 4 sons in the torah? (someone who is referred to as a chacham, rasha, tam)?

    #1217449

    Participant

    1. Tamar (not exactly called, but that she had done ‘the act’) and Dinah (compared to a Zonah)

    2. Yishmael, Levi and Amram

    2. Yoseph is called Chacham

    Moshe called one of the two Yisraelim fighting a Rasha

    Yaakov is called “Ish Tam Yoshev Oholim”

    this is from ohr.edu

    As the sun moves from east to west, Shabbat and Yom Tov occur first in Israel, and then in America. Which mitzva is observed first in New York, and then in Jerusalem?

    At the end of Moshe’s life, Hashem shows Moshe the entire land of Israel. But where does the Torah indicate that Moshe saw Chevron long before that?

    Which Mitzvah is performed on Wednesday or Thursday only?

    3) Michal bas Shaul (http://www.mechon-mamre.org/i/t/t08b06.htm)

    4) I think that the mother of Esther died in childbirth as well.
