In the book of Numbers, five women, daughters of the tribe of Manasseh, stepped forward with conviction. “Give us land, a property inheritance in borders of the Promised Land. Our father had no sons, only daughters so why should our father’s name disappear from among Israel?” In making this request, these daughters petitioned for a change in the Law. In this teaching, Aliyah unpacks their request and how their words impacted generations upon generations of Israelite women. Also, finding biblical women and their names in historical or archaeological documents is often extremely difficult. Yet, the daughters of Zelophehad appear elsewhere, proving their existence and their impact. This exciting truth reveals their legacy! Join Aliyah for this rich, profound teaching on these women of inheritance, Machlah, Noa, Hoglah, Milcah and Tirzah.
