101 are the bones on each side of the human body. (Ohalos 1:8)
101 were the years of Montefiore.
One hundred and one are the verses in Parashas Tetzaveh, which corresponds to learning something one hundred and one times. Learning this many times will ensure that you don't forget. Thus, this parasha is often the parasha connected to Parashas Zachor, which exhorts us לא תשכח, do not forget. Amalek, who wants us to forget, is עמל-ק, work up to only 100.
(Heard from R' Nochum Lansky of Ner Israel)
