Tanach compares the wicked King Menashe of Judah to the equally wicked King Achav of Israel (II Kings 21:3) - indeed, the Gemara (Sanhedrin 102b-103a) derives a couple of facts about him from this comparison.

Their reigns were separated by 185 years: Achav was killed in battle in 3043, Menashe's reign began in 3228.


From Pesach up to and including Shemini Atzeres is exactly 185 days long.



here you can see the text of house resolution 185 which recognizes Jewish refugees from Arab lands.
