Sisters! The Daughters of Tzelofchad

SISTERS! The Daughters of Tzelofchad, is the story of five loving sisters, described by the sages as being righteous, wise and knowing how to seek out the hidden meanings in the Torah. Their father dies in the desert and they discover that the family inheritance would pass to his brothers, as he died leaving no sons, only daughters. They courageously approach Moses and his court to ask for their father’s portion in the land of Israel. They want their father’s name to be remembered and they have a great love for the promised land, even though they have not yet seen it. G-d Himself declares them correct and a new law is written. The Daughters of Tzelofchad are role models for our time of family love and of the power and empowerment of women.
