comment Shiv'a Ushlosh Meyot - mi yodeya?
Indeed, according to my calculation, Noch sent the dove for the third time on the 310th day of the flood - which works out to be the 2nd of Tishrei. ... (regarding @DoubleAA's point - it seems that Rashi is ok with using Cheshvan as 29 days, Kislev as 30 days Tevet - 29 and so on -- see Rashi Bereshit 8:3)

comment Shiv'a Ushlosh Meyot - mi yodeya?
I think this wiki is incorrect. Bereshit 8:13 says that on the 1st of the first month (=Tishrei acc. to R. Eliezer) "the waters dried up from upon the earth, and Noah removed the covering of the ark, and he saw, and behold, the surface of the ground had dried up" - which isn't necessarily connected to the previos pasuk 8:12 concerning how Noah sent a dove for the third time......

So according to this, Rachav could have invited not only family members to her house when Yehoshua would come to conquer Canaan, but also any canaanite who agreed to become Jewish... (How are we to fit this with the text?)

Still, when the spies promised to save her and her family, they stipulated some conditions....and converting wasn't one of them (at least it's not clearly mentioned in the psukim there) - so then the question would remain: how could they sware?
