According to the Midrash that Rivka was 14 when she married, she was 133 when she died (Sifri 357)

14 years when she got married

20 years later she had Yaakov

63 years later Yaakov got the brachos and went toward Padam Aram

14 years in Yeshiva Shem v'Ever

20 years in Lavan's house

1 1/2 years in Sukkos

1/2 year in Shechem

  • I wouldn't have put a separate answer for the calculation. I believe we were writing (almost) simultaneously.

The 133th day from Rosh Hashanna is Tu Bishvat, if both Heshvan and Kislev are Haserim (have only 29 days)

  • I like it because it points out the uniqueness of those two months' lengths.
