Who knows two hundred eighty-six?

?ששה ושמונים ומאתים - מי יודע

In the spirit of the song "Echad - mi yodeya", please post interesting and significant Jewish facts about the number 286.

In casting about for a lazy gematria for this one, a lot seemed more appropriate for a different time on the calendar.

Check out for the previous two hundred eighty-five entries in this ongoing series.

Please include sources for your information wherever possible, as with all other answers on this site.

  • interesting fact, but what is the significance of it? – morah hochman Dec 28 '11 at 23:46
  • @morahhochman absolutely none that I can tell. I don't think significance is the only requirement. The question says "please post interesting and significant Jewish facts about the number 286.". I find this interesting, even if there is no significance. – Hod - Monica's Army Dec 29 '11 at 0:36
