Welcome To Bais Mordechai

The hope of this site is to be educational and inspirational. I see the Torah as an instruction manual given to us by a benevolent Father in heaven to help us navigate our lives, with stories and examples for us to learn from.
BIBLE = Book of Instruction By which to Live on Earth
FROG = Forever Rely On G-d
Frogs only jump forward not backward. So too must we continue to move forward in our quest for spirituality and contentment.

Chp. 27 verses 1 - 7: This chapter deals with the righteous daughters of Tzelophehad. There are different opinions as to whom he really was. However,general consensus is that he was the '' the gatherer of the wood on the Shabbos." His daughters were requesting that Moshe give them their father's portion in the land of Israel as their inheritance, since he had no sons to inherit. Moshe gives their case over to God to judge. He tells Moshe that they are correct in their request and that is the law for the future. If a man has no sons then his daughters do inherit.
