Who knows two hundred ninety-nine?
?תשעה ותשעים ומאתים - מי יודע
In the spirit of the song "Echad - mi yodeya", please post interesting and significant Jewish facts about the number 299.
Once again, lazy gematria gets us nowhere with this one, but if I could find something interesting for 298, you certainly can for 299.
Check out mi-yodeya-series for the previous two hundred ninety-eight entries in this ongoing series.
Please include sources for your information wherever possible, as with all other answers on this site.
