Shiur by
 Rabbanit Iris Odani Elyashiv 
on Parashat Pinchas:

Just as God advocated for the property
rights of Zelophehad's daughters, we should
work to create economic opportunities for those
who have lacked them.
Parashat Pinhas is a very numerical parasha,
 filled with census-taking and dividing ownership
 of the Promised Land between the tribes of Israel.

A description of the highlights of the Torah, 

according to the divisions of the weekly portions.

Unlike a Reader’s Digest version of the Torah, 
which would cut out much of the law and all of 
the lists, a description of the Torah following each
 weekly portion reflects the real rhythms of the text.

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.


Have a wonderful week

שבוע טוב ומבורך
