...of nineteen years, that is.
"Last night [which was Pesach]," Gideon argued to the angel who had just told him "G-d is with you," "Father read the Hallel, and I heard him say 'When Israel went out of Egypt...' But now G-d has abandoned us! If our ancestors were tzaddikim, let G-d help us in their merit. If they were wicked - why, then, just as He performed unearned miracles for them, let Him do the same for us. So 'where are all His wonders?'" (Rashi to Judges 6:13)
This was 235 years after the Exodus. (40 years in the desert + 28 of Yehoshua's leadership + 40 of Osniel ben Kenaz's + 80 of Ehud's + 40 of Devorah's + 7 years of Midianite oppression.)
In a non-leap year, Yom Yerushalayim is the 235th day in the year if Heshvan is Haser (has 29 days) and Kislev is whole (has 30 days):
Tishrei - 30 days
Heshvan - 29 days
Kislev - 30 days
Tevet - 29 days
Shvat - 30 days
Adar - 29 days
Nisan - 30 days
Iyar - 28 days (Yom Yerushalayim is on the 28th day of Iyar)
