precious daughters of Israel

Thursday, 5 July, 2018 - 11:54 pm

Thank you all for your birthday wishes, as another year has gone down in the books! Having you as part of our extended family means so much to us, more than we can express.


In our Parsha, Moshe instructs how to divide the family by tribe. While Jewish descent is maternal, tribal affiliation is paternal. The daughters of Tzlafchad, whose father died without sons, cared for the Land of Israel and petitioned to be granted the portion that would have belonged to their father. They were as holy as the generation of women before them. While the men 38 years prior refused to enter the land of Israel, the women loved the land and desired to go. 38 years later and the daughters of Tzlafchad still had the same affinity to a piece of the Holy Land. Hashem accepts it, and institutes it as law.

A story in Torah is to teach us lessons. Israel is not only a land to promote and be proud of, we are connected intrinsically to it. Keeping our land intact and uncompromising our borders echos the call of the daughters of Israel and now.
