    Is this significant? – Double AA Apr 13 '14 at 14:31
  • Yes. Longest parsha (Written Torah) = 176 pesukim. Longest mesechta (Oral Torah) = 176 daf. Longest chapter in Tehillim (tefilla) = 176 pesukim. Through our combined efforts in all three - Written & Oral Torah and prayer - we will merit "kel b'nei kel b'nei", the building of the 3rd Beis HaMikdash. – yaacov May 5 '14 at 6:25
