Who knows seventy-six?

Please cite/link your sources, if possible. At some point in the next few days, I will:

Seventy-six is the length of the Slaughterhouse. (See Mishneh Torah: Hilchot Beit Habechira 5:15-16 and 5:12.)

  • Good find! I always pictured the boards that the hooks were attached to for hanging and skinning as being vertical. I guess you learn something new every number.

    I hope this isn't all we learn from this number. I haven't yet had to accept my own answer in this series, and I don't want to start now.
