Re: SHAPIROs from Rashi #general

Avotaynu once published about 20 'descent >from Rashi' trees, showing how
each of them would be impossible. And actually, if any Jew today is
descended >from Rashi, then we all are; there are so many generations
between us and him, and relatively few Jews to have as the millions of
ancestors so far back. In 1000 years, at 3 generations a century, that
would be 2 to the 33rd power ancestors.
