Noah and his family (and the animals) would remain on the Ark for over a year, until the flood waters had sufficiently subsided.

Cheshvan 3

In the year 1290, the last of the 16,000 Jews expelled by King Edward I left England. King Edward had banned usury and forced Jews over the age of seven to wear an identifying badge.
