In this week's Parsha, How many Meraglim did Moishe send to Eretz Yisroel?
Tosfos ( Sotah 34a d"h Turtani) quotes the Yerushalmi "Ish Echod Ish Echod L'mateh
Avosov" Machlokes between R. Yishmael who holds Dibra Torah Kilshon Odom
(The Torah speaks like humans do ) and therefore even though the Torah repeats Ish Echod
twice, it still means one person per Shevet. R. Akivah holds Lo Dibra- it says in the Torah
twice Ish Echod because there were two people per Shevet. (24 Meraglim).
