The Gemoro (Kidushin 30a) says that the middle (in words) of the Torah is at דרש דרש משה .
According to the computer, this statement seems to be incorrect*1.
My father A”H told me that in the Torah we have 81 times where the same word appears twice, next to each other *2. Forty of them appear before דרש דרש משה and the other 40 appear after דרש דרש משה.
· *1 On words we can’t answer אין אנו בקיאין בחסרות ויתרות
· *2 (example) אלה תולדת נח נח איש צדיק
1- where does the computer put the mid-point?ReplyDelete
2- have you ever counted the 81 times?
