And in somewhat related news, it turns out that last week’s inaugural edition of Fish Tank Friday was my 300th post.
Which naturally begs the question - as my Heblish-speaking kids would say - “what’s the kesher?” Is there some deep and profound significance to this random bit of trivia? Does it serve to teach us an important lesson?
Moreover, what are we to make of the fact that the combined gematriah of אוקיינוס (ocean), ים (sea), and דג (fish) is 300?
Perhaps it’s a sign or omen – a la the Rosh Hashanah simanim – for my posts to multiply like fish?
Maybe it’s an indication that this blog is coming along swimmingly?
I have no idea.
But feel free to think of your own connections.
And remember, the more farfetched and convoluted the better…
