When Did She Die




Q: Is the Mamme רחל's Yahrzeit on the 11th of מרחשון*?

A:   Not according to the פסיקתא רבתי, or רש"י.

The  Pesikta writes רחל died between Pesach & Shavuos (summer) when the ground is dry.

Breishis 48:7 agrees with the Pesikta.
Rashi writes רחל died in the dry season (summer)

ילקוט שמעוני*
