From One Trouble to Another

המן בן המדתא האגגי צרר היהודים in Gematria is 1189.

The decree of Haman to destroy the Jews was in the year 3405 (per our calendar).

3405 - 1189 takes us to the year 2216, the year of Mechirat Yosef.

3405 + (1189 * 2) brings us to 5783.

And for one that would say how could 5783 be bad, the verse in Yirmiyahu applies:
ועת צרה היא ליעקב, וממנה יושע
Which means that the salvation comes davka from within the trouble.


  1. Wow! Thanks for those awesome Gematria calculations! This is excellent, many thanks. We will have to see what happens.

  2. This is nice. I wonder what happened one time 1189 years after 3405.

  3. There is a keitz for each millennium. I haven't examine the possibilities to see if this would qualify.
