Parashat Pinchas: Torah Portion Micrography Print (11"x14")
Parashat (Torah portion) Pinchas opens with God blessing Pinchas for his passion in defending God (by reaming an idolatrous Midianite woman with a spear), but the bulk of the portion focuses on the census, the sacrificial calendar, and the story of Tzelophechad's daughters: when Tzelophachad died, he had five daughters and no sons.
In a society where only men usually inherit their father's property, the five women took up an appeal to Subject_Moses. They argued that they should be allowed to inherit their father's property and gain his share of the tribal land holdings. Subject_Moses relayed the request to God, who instructed Subject_Moses to allow the women to inherit their father's estate -- provided they marry within the tribe, so their father's property stays within the tribe.
The daughters agree, setting a precedent for (at least brotherless) women's rights to familial inheritance in the Torah.
