Shabbat Shalom! – Pinchas

Parashat Pinchas has a little bit of everything. It has the conclusion of the troubling story of Pinchas, who committed a double murder in defense of Torah in last week’s Torah portion. It has a census of the tribes, which can be interesting to compare with other censuses in Torah. It has commandments regarding many Jewish holidays, including Rosh ChodeshPassoverShavuotSukkotand the High Holy Days. And at its heart it has the story of the Daughters of Zelophehad.

So let’s see what the darshanot (yes, darshanot this week – all women!) make of this cornucopia of possibilities!

Rabbi Sylvia Rothschild: #Girlpower; Or: The real stars of the sidra are the five women siblings who transform society and create justice.

Rabbi Ruth Adar: Oh Daughters, My Mothers!

Rabbi Dr. Margaret Jacobi: D’var Torah Parashat Pinchas

Rabbi Amy Scheinerman: “I’m gonna live forever!”

Rabbi Eleanor Steinman: Pinchas with Rabbi Ellie (VIDEO)
