Parsha Pinchas

              “The plea of Zelophehad’s daughters
          is just... transfer their
          father’s share to them.”
                 Numbers 27:7

Daughters of Zelophehad

did it anger you
to ask
for the same rights
a son earned
simply by being male born
did you sit together and wonder what
words to use to claim your father’s share

you asked that your father’s name not be lost
what is your mother’s name
you, the daughters of Zelophedad
Mahlah, Noah, Hoglah, Milcah, Tirzah
