    Trivia (3)

    • Goof: The Hebrew letter over 'DAY FIVE' is supposed to be 'Hé' (ה), the fifth letter in the Hebrew alphabet (its numerical value is 5). Instead, the letter shown is 'Het' (ח), the eighth letter (numerical value: 8). Both letters look similar, except that the upper left corner of 'Hé' is open.

    • The letters over the title cards 'DAY TWO', 'DAY THREE', etc in the day titles, are Hebrew letters, which represnt numerical values (like all hebrew letters). For instance, the letter over 'DAY TWO' is the second letter in the hebrew alphabet and represents the number 2, and so on.

    • 'Shiva' is Hebrew for 'seven'. In Jewish tradition, the grieving family (1st degree) sits in the house for seven days, starting right after the burial of their late loved one. During the 'Shiva', people come to console them. The mourners are not allowed to eat their own food in the first meal after the burial, so their friends and neighbours provide food for them.
