An example concerning Megillas Esther
Perhaps even more amazingly, given that Rabbi Weissmandl was operating without benefit
of a computer, it is known that he made a number of findings concerning Megillas Esther
using skip distances of 12,111 letters, the exact number of letters in Megillas Esther. I
was able to reconstruct one of these using a computer. If one starts with the first
regular mem (as opposed to "final mem") in Bereishis 4:14, where the name
Esther (vocalized differently) appears for the only time in the Torah, and counts at
intervals of 12,111 letters, one finds spelled out the phrase "Megillas Esther."
NOTE: While the article may give the impression there is a single 8 letter ELS with
there is only a four letter ELS with that skip (and a plain text occurrence
of the name Esther).
