TODAY (29 Tammuz) is the 900th anniversary of Rashi's death, but I can't find any mention of it in today's news. Curious.

UPDATE (6 August): Christopher Heard notes this article in Arutz Sheva:
900th Anniversary of Bible Commentator Rashi´s Death
14:54 Aug 05, '05 / 29 Tammuz 5765
By Nissan Ratzlav-Katz

Friday marks the 900th anniversary of the death of one of the Jewish people's greatest Bible and Talmud commentators, Rabbi Shlomo Yitzchaki, known as Rashi.
