On The Rabbinical Exegesis of an Enhanced Biblical Value of Pi

In Hardi Grant, Israel Kleiner & Abe Shenitzer (eds.), Proc. of the 17th Congress of the Canadian Society of History and Philosophy of Mathematics. Kingston (1991)
We present here a biblical exegesis of the value of Pi, PI_{Hebrew} = 3.141509 ..., from the well known verse 1 Kings 7:23. This verse is then compared to 2 Chronicles 4:2; the comparison provides independent supporting evidence for the exegesis.
