    I wonder why they used 1 out of 1000 as their example (besides the “fetish” with powers of ten for such examples). Why not use something like 1 out of 72 (like Sanhedrin), or 1 out of some other meaningful number to Judaism?

    Hmmm, why would any shul call itself “Beit Am” today?

    סימן שנא חלה תרומה נגזלת דינא שבועה שיפוכתא גילויא ונבלותא:

    What is the siman exactly? (usually they use roshei teivot)

      It’s all the halachos of this particular rabbi in the mesechta.

      • MarkSoFla

        Right. But the word siman …. isn’t it usually used when roshei teivot are involved?

        • http://finkorswim.com E. Fink

          It just means “memory device”.

            I guess I just have d’zach adash b’echav stuck in my head :-)
