Chasam Sofers Joke


The Midrash (פ'פנחס) enumerates the six names of זמרי. and the reason for 5 of the names why he was called by that name.

On the name שלמיאל, the Midrash doesn't give the reason because this was his original name.

The ליקוטי חבר בן חיים writes, he heard from his Rebbe the Chasam Sofer,
Why was he named Shlumiel ?

The Midrash (פ' בלק) says that 12 ניסים happened to פנחס which
enabled him to kill זמרי.

The Chasam Sofer jokingly said "Wasn’t he a Shlumiel that all
the 12 things that had to happen in order for him to get killed,
actually happened."
