Pinchas - 28 July 2016 / 22 Tamuz, 5776

It is interesting to me to note how often the weekly parasha mirrors events in the world around us. In Pinchas, a milestone of women’s rights is achieved: Five sisters,who have no brothers (the daughters of Zelophechad), convince Moses and God that they should be able to receive their father’s inheritance. (Num. 27:5-7) Prior to this moment, only males could inherit the family property. In this week of Hillary Rodham Clinton receiving the nomination of the Democratic Party for President of the United States, another milestone has been achieved, or as we like to say today, a glass ceiling has been broken. Whatever your political views or your presidential preferences might be, we can all rejoice at this very symbolic moment of progress for women in American life.
