I could never afford Sheckels so I have focused some energy on Zuzim. Zuzim are mentioned in the Password song - that my father brought a goat for 2 zuzzim. It is also well know that a man comsimates a divorce from his wife buy giving her a payment of 40 zuzzim.
I had a batch of them which I picked up for about $800 each that were stolen.
Today I have replenished some of them at considerably more costs
So many immigrant groups have swept through our town that Brooklyn, like Atlantis, reaches mythological proportions in the mind of the world - RI Safir 1998
This is the first I’ve known of these, they’re quite wonderful, really great history!
Sorry about the theft, that must have been a hard hit.
I'm BACK!!! Used to be Billet7 on the old forum.
Excellent research, thanks

Just 40 zuzzim for a divorce?! Don't go giving people any ideas!
By the way.... did you ever try singing the last verse of that song in just 1 breath, or was that just a thing from MY childhood?
