Various Derivations Found
for Name of Mea Shearim

By RABBI SAMUEL FOX
(Copyright 1977, JTA, Inc.)

The Septuagint trans-
lates the word shearim as
seorim, meaning barley. It
has been scientifically es-
tablished that some rich
lava soil will give such a
yield to barley crops, i.e., a
100 kernels for, every seed
planted.
A folk tale relates that
the territory was named
Mea Shearim meaning a
"100 gates" because
there were 100 doors or
gates there. This is based
on the assumption that
100 people organized
themselves to establish
residences there. They
would thus have 10()
doorways of main entr-
ances to their homes
there.

Mea Shearim was one
of the first areas which,
was built and settled in
modern times outside of
the ancient walls of
erusalem. It is claimed
y some that the name
Mea Shearim was given
to this settlement be-
cause it was founded in
the week when a portion
of the Torah is read which
contains this expression.
It comes from a verse in
Genesis (26:12) which
reads "And Isaac sowed
in that land and found in
that year 'one hundred
shearim.' "
In this respect the ex-
pression Mea Shearim is
translated as a "100-
Newspapers deliver mas-
fold," meaning that for
every seed planted 100 sive coverage of all educa-
tional levels.
