Who knows three hundred twenty-seven?

?שבעה ועשרים ושלוש מאות - מי יודע

The traditional Passover song "Echad - mi yodeya" implies a possible presupposition that there is a Jewish significance to be found for each natural number. Accordingly, there is an ongoing series on Mi Yodeya that is attempting to unearth significant Judaism facts about each number, in sequence.

What significant Judaism facts are there about the number 327? The more significant within Judaism and the more intrinsically dependent on the value 327, the stronger the answer. Please include sources for your information wherever possible, as with all other answers on this site.

I hereby recommend not using lazy gematriyas for answers... and this line does NOT have any puns on it!

    Yeyasher kochacha sheshibarta et ha taboo. Note that the last line in the previous question, which you've copied here, contains two puns on lazy gematria for 326, but not for 327

  • If there are puns, i don't see them... And why did you remove the top line? It's sort of like credit to you for the text. ;)

  • All I can say is, if you don't see the puns, keep looking! You can also try to see if they pop out when you try to generate lazy-gematria puns for 326 yourself. Unfortunately, I can't think of any good ones for 327. 328, on the other hand, will be easy. The top line was misspelled and irrelevant to the question at hand.

The Sefer Chazoinim which was printed in the late 16th century includes 327 Piyutim for Shabbos, Yom Tov, and Rosh Hashana.

Thanks to Seridei Shira for this information.


Even Sapir volume 2 - page 224 says that the Sefer Hoshea from Trei Asar spans a period of 327 years from Uziyahu Hamelech until the year Alexander Mokdon arrived.
