In Parashat Pinchas we read about five special women – the daughters of Tzlofchad, who were privileged to renew halachah in Torah and inherited their father’s property in the Land of Israel. Interestingly, in the Book of Job we read about the three daughters of Job who appear to have something in common with the daughters of Tzlofchad: they also got an inheritance from their father among their brothers. However, this may be not the only thing that brings these stories together. In his signature style, Rabbi Moshe Genuth, analyzes the mathematical aspect of the Torah text and lets the numbers reveal more hidden meanings and relations between the names and verses.
