    Here are the rules;

    Every day we find something that has the same number/amount of that day’s sefirah, e.g. tonight is the 8th day of the Omar so we can choose to write Chanukah (8 days) or anything alse with the number 8.

    And unlike the ?????? ???? ???? you don’t have to know yiddish or have a Hebrew keyboard to play this game, so everyone can join the fun!!!!

    So ready, set, GO!!!!!!!

    I know this is slightly, sorta, very much off topic, and I apologise in advance, but speaking about sefira; why is the YWN radio still working?

    For those heimishe cooks out there who dont like following cook books but prefer to use their own measures: there are said to be 8 pinches to a teaspoon!

    A great sefira fact about number 8: There are 8 white notes on a keyboard or piano in an octave!

    why is the YWN radio still working?

    Some people start Rosh Chodesh (I’m posting this when there are no responses up yet, and the latest reply is four hours ago, so I wouldn’t be surprised if by the time this is posted, it’s about the fifth similar response!).

    BY94 – YWN Radio is still working presumably because there are several minhagim of aveilus during the omer. Some people do listen to music now.

    The “eighth” note in music

    That’s funny. I thought there were seven notes to an octave. Any musicians in the CR to verify? (majors or minors, flat ones or sharp ones)

    the amount of hours i wish i got to sleep every night.

    ZK-you r right. but the eighth note is a cd by yossi green

    #948945

    There are 7 notes in an octave. They go from A to G.

    When we’re talking about a typical major or minor scale, the octave falls by the 8th note of the scale.

    E.g., a C-major scale consists of:

    C D E F G A B C(one octave above your starting C)

    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8

    Now, if we’re doing a whole tone scale, there’s only 7. If a half tone scale, 13.

    why is the YWN radio still working?

    My CD player is also working if I choose to put it on on sefirah, thats why I dont put it on. So if your minhag is not to hear music even before Rosh Chodesh (as is mine) just dont put it on.

    Not sure the exact details-but there’s something mystical about the “eight note”- the music going straight up to shamayim….Yossi Green has an album called “the eight note”….

    can we wait to post the next number after dark?

    In some parts of the world, it is already tomorrow.

    (Now, if the people in those parts of the world would be kind enough to let me know tonight’s Lotto numbers, I’d be greatly appreciative.

    MotherinIsrael and Zeeskite: Sorry for making it ‘sound’ confusing, but Avram in MD and Am Yisrael Chai both explained it well.

    There are in fact EIGHT notes in an octave. Otherwise it would be called a septave had there been only seven notes in it.

    ‘Oct’ is 8 as in octagon or octogenarian etc.

    An octave is the interval between two notes where the higher note has twice the frequency of the lower note. On a piano keyboard, this corresponds to an interval of 8 white notes eg C D E F G A B C.

    We do not say that a week has 8 days cos it starts and ends on a ??? or a Sunday, so to be logical the music scale seems to have only 7 notes. But when you come to play a musical scale, it sounds incomplete unless you play all 8 notes starting with the lower note and ending with the higher one, as AYC correctly pointed out from do-re-mi- ending again with –do.

    Ok, maybe we adopt an universel clock for this game? Maybe the Jerusalem time zone. So here goes number nine;

    9 squeres, rows and columns on a suduku grid.

    9 squeres on each side of a Rubics Cube.

    9 people to answer amen at chazaras hasatz. (tishu oinim)

    Universal clock sounds great- been waiting to post a 9, and wondering when it’d finally be 🙂
