The Gemara in Niddah 29b discusses a complicated scenario involving a woman who miscarried, regarding which Beis Shammai hold that the woman will be required to immerse in a mikveh on various days (due to טבילה בזמנה מצוה) for a total of 95 times.
There are 95 places in the Gemara where the halachah is decided according to R' Yosei. This relates Kabbalistically to the fact that the large Sanhedrin (of 72 meambers including the Nasi) and the small one (of 23) also total 95, as well as to a couple of the other 95-words that Gershon mentioned.
Speaking of seasonality, the word "LeDovid" appears 95 times in Tanach.
Matza = 95 Haman = 95 Malka = 95 Yiska = 95 Yaffa = 95 HaMelech = 95 Zevulin = 95
Chelbena (one of the spices in the k'tores) = 95. Also, "keis kah" (Hashem's "incomplete" throne) = 95.
