141 is the floor of the greatest distance (141 and a third, in cubits) two cities can be to view them as one (sort of: see mishnayos Eruvin chapter 5).


141 years ago (Nov. 9, 1869) the Austro-Hungarian emperor Franz Joseph visited Jerusalem. Among the benefits to the Jewish People from his visit: a donation towards the completion of one of the Old City's famous shuls, Tiferes Yisrael (now, unfortunately, destroyed).


141 is how many judges the great sanhedrin obviously doesn't need. (Source: Bavli, Sanhedrin 3b.)

    ...which is also true of the numbers 16, 571, 4237½, and √π. Though it is true that the Gemara doesn't mention those as possibilities. :)
