 New Statistical Evidence for a Genuine Code in Genesis
The same exercise was then carried out with a list of rabbis that had not been used before, namely those whose entries in Margaliot's encyclopedia occupy from 1 to 1.5 columns and for whom there is a date of birth or death mentioned (except for those incorrectly included by WRR in their second list).
The definition of the set of rabbis, the introduction of P3 and P4 (only P1 and P2 appeared with the first list) and, most importantly, the definition of the permutation test, were under WRR's control when they ran their second experiment and were merely copied by us.
These questions were asked a year after he prepared the lists, and it is plausible that he forgot details of a project that did not interest him [8] and was done as a sideline.

To be included, the rabbis had to have a sufficiently long entry (over 3 columns of text for the first list, over 1.5 columns of text for a later list) and a date of death.
Checking a new list according to the same rules or protocol which governed the first list can be viewed as tantamount to removing the first arrow, and requiring the authors to shoot a fresh arrow into the same target, with no opportunity for adapting its position.
Readers may be forgiven for assuming hitherto that each rabbi in the lists was represented by a single name and a single date, perhaps forgetting for a moment that a person's "name" or even a person's "date of death" is not a unique and well-defined sequence of letters.

The woman had converted to Judaism, and despite the fact that the rabbi who converted her in the United States was himself Orthodox, he didn't appear on the Israeli Chief Rabbinate's short list of approved foreign rabbis.
And so, recalled Rabbi Seth Farber, himself an Orthodox rabbi and a member of the Israeli rabbinate, the couple elected to be married in Israel by an Orthodox rabbi - but not a member of the rabbinate.
As such, hundreds of Orthodox rabbis from outside Israel didn't seek a spot on the list because they knew that their certification by the Beth Din of America, which is associated with the RCA, would suffice.

Among the tannaim and the amoraim, only Yehudah is pictured as combining the learning of a rabbinic sage who mastered the oral Torah with the skill of a seasoned politician who was an equal to the emperor of Rome.
But Yehudah alone among the rabbis is praised equally for his knowledge and piety and for his political skills.
The tradition presents a unique rabbi whose knowledge of the rabbinic tradition and whose political skills permitted him to bring together the rabbinic and nonrabbinic classes of society and to rebuild the Palestinian Jewish community after the devastating defeat of Bar Kokhba.

Simon considers the fatal flaw in the "Rabbi's Experiment" the fact that the list of words (see third section) that was made by Professor S. Havlin is not objective, meaning that another researcher can not replicate the choices in the list, since it is based on subjective judgments.
When the original list of rabbis and their dates of birth/death (see introduction) was used, highly significant statistical results were obtained.
He has shown a significant correlation between ELSs of the appellations of both lists of rabbis (original list and test list described in section 2) and ELSs of the Jewish communities in which they were born or died.
