Chacham's Journal: Puzzle: 15 letter word, no repeat letters. (Found in a sig) 9

Journal by Chacham

Simple, word has to be fifteen letters long, and no letters repeated.

On another note. What the longest word (not chemical name) you know? I believe the longest word, in English, is 28 letters. Each language has it's own thing. Such as, anyone know the word in the Bible (Hebrew) that has the highest numerical value? Then there's that book in English without any "e"s.

    According to this site [chabadirvine.org], which I found with Google [google.com]:

    Question: The largest Gematria - numerical value of a word is in this week's portion. Can you find it?
    Answer: Numbers 16:13, the word "Tistarer", equals 1500.

    Of course, the Torah is only the first five books -- Genesis through Deuteronomy -- whereas the "Hebrew Bible" also includes the Prophets and Writings... but this is a first quick answer.
