This D'var Torah was delivered on 11 July 2009 at the Dorshei Derekh minyan of the Germantown Jewish Centre in Philadelphia. The complete text is attached after the following excerpt... Jewish and Christian feminists love the story of the daughters of Tzelophehad and how they and God re-write Torah to give them an inheritance in the Promised Land. But I think that their story is properly understood over and against the execution - or is it murder? Or martyrdom? - of Cozbi bat Tzur and Zimri ben Salu.
