Description

The request of Tzelofhad's daughters is generally seen as a desire to maintain their deceased father's name by having his land stay within the family. However, a closer look at the 2 main stories in Bamidbar - and their odd "split" into two separate sections - along with the relevant passage in Yehoshua 17, leaves us with a number of questions about their real motivation. The shiur suggests a different approach to their initiative.
