I was also there today and honestly I don't have a CLUE how many ppl were there. With all the dust in the air and not a single helicopter in the sky and everyone spread out over such a large area I can't see how ANYONE, even a news station, could give an accurate number.
I guess that explains why the range is between 100K and 800K. Also, the secular media tends to give lower numbers than the religious media for this kind of thing (R' Ovadia's levaya....).
Could have been over 600K, could have been under. Who knows?

Basically that you should first learn chumash. After that you will be eligible to critique your first grade rebbe.
When you get more advanced you can talk about R' ezrachi.

There is a big difference between saying something is an approximation and an exxageration

The gemara does not say a shem umalchus. Its narrishkeit. He was not reading from the gemara.

There are shitos in the reshonim that even by yotzei mitzrayim 600K was an approximation.


My words precisely.  :P

So then if there were 300K, is that approximately 600K?

Why exactly do you think it makes a difference if he was reading from the gemara or not?

if the gemara says it then its not a bracha levatala because he's just learning. But not sure what to say now that it doesn't say it with the Shem hamalchis.
