קובץ:The Daughters of Zelophehad.jpg

The Daughters of Zelophehad before Mosheh

 A Summary of the Parsha

God gives Pinhas a covenant

 of peace; God explains the

 apportionment of the

 land of Israel;

 the daughters of zelophechad

 to inherit their father's portion, 

 Moses appoints

 Joshua his successor.

The prophet Elijah is so zealous

 for God, he loses his job .

The haftarah selection is from Kings I, 18:46-19:21.
The haftarah for Parashat Pinhas features the last, and perhaps most famous, biblical story about Elijah the prophet. Living during the reign of the evil Israelite king Ahab and his even-worse queen, Jezebel, Elijah gained a reputation for working miracles and crusading against idolatry. The haftarah begins just after Elijah has slaughtered 450 worshipers of Ba'al.

Letter to the Hebrew Congregation

 at Newport

George Washington

August 1790

While I received with much satisfaction your address replete with expressions of esteem, I rejoice in the opportunity of assuring you that I shall always retain grateful remembrance of the cordial welcome I experienced on my visit to Newport from all classes of citizens.
The reflection on the days of difficulty and danger which are past is rendered the more sweet from a consciousness that they are succeeded by days of uncommon prosperity and security.
If we have wisdom to make the best use of the advantages with which we are now favored, we cannot fail, under the just administration of a good government, to become a great and happy people.
The citizens of the United States of America have a right to applaud themselves for having given to mankind examples of an enlarged and liberal policya policy worthy of imitation. All possess alike liberty of conscience and immunities of citizenship.
It is now no more that toleration is spoken of as if it were the indulgence of one class of people that another enjoyed the exercise of their inherent natural rights, for, happily, the Government of the United States, which gives to bigotry no sanction, to persecution no assistance, requires only that they who live under its protection should demean themselves as good citizens in giving it on all occasions their effectual support.
It would be inconsistent with the frankness of my character not to avow that I am pleased with your favorable opinion of my administration and fervent wishes for my felicity.
May the children of the stock of Abraham who dwell in this land continue to merit and enjoy the good will of the other inhabitantswhile every one shall sit in safety under his own vine and fig tree and there shall be none to make him afraid.
May the father of all mercies scatter light, and not darkness, upon our paths, and make us all in our several vocations useful here, and in His own due time and way everlastingly happy.
G. Washington
