    In Megillas Esther it says the word Yehudi, singular form, 6 times.

    It says the word Yehudim, plural, 38 times.

    It says the word Yehudiim (???????), with an extra yud, 6 times.

    Let us stipulate that Yehudim with one yud = 2 mentions, and that with two yuds = 3 mentions.

    6+(38×2)+(6×3)=100

    ???? ??? ???? ??????

    The 100 times yehudi overcame Haman’s 10,000 kikar kesef.

    Now, ????? in gimatria is 35. The thirty fifth pasuk in Esther is:

    ??) ???? ????? ??? ?? ???? ?? ?? ??? ???? ???? ?? ???? ??? ???? ????? ?? ??? ????

    on which Rashi comments, cryptically:

    ??”? ???? ??? ? ???? ??

    ?? ??? ???? – ?? ???? ????? ???

    v’od yadeinu netuyah…
