In this week’s parsha we are inspired by the daughters of Tzlafchad.
Parshat Pinchas teaches us the significance of being significant – through our census and through our inheritance rights.
This week’s Torah reading mentions “bikkurim” — first fruits.
In Parshat Pinchas, we meet the five daughters of Tzelafchad: Machlah, No’ah, Chaglah, Milkah and Tirtzah. When Tzelafchad dies, these daughters petition Moshe to grant them their father’s inheritance since he had no sons.
