Are all other cities in the same area of doubt as Shiloh? Now that you mention it, I just thought others in Israel might know the other cities (and would they all be in Israel?) that qualify.<br /><br />Speaking of pi, as many of your readers know, March 14 (3/14) is called "Pi Day" because the first digits of the decimal approximation of pi is 3.14. As a math instructor myself, I often see some Pi Day events around me, and there was a Washington Post blogger who had an article about it recently.<br /><br />Kudos to Prof. Dr. Numero for the Choni Ha'Maagel sign. He must be an interesting person who happened to take advantage of Pi Day being so close to Purim, and he brought a smile to my face with this article.sheldanhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/14580796197438228506noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-8476955.post-28044541857058087982014-03-17T12:04:25.321+02:002014-03-17T12:04:25.321+02:00Ariela, what a totally brilliant thought...Ariela, what a totally brilliant thought...Batya Medadhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/09402874037427009327noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-8476955.post-24878313575722946782014-03-17T09:48:42.941+02:002014-03-17T09:48:42.941+02:00when i see large numbers such as 100,000...it make...when i see large numbers such as 100,000...it makes me think l'havdil of how small it is compared to six million.Ariela ben-Eliezerhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/03874497669889383402noreply@blogger.com
