This week's portion continues the story of Pinchas, which began at the end of last week's parasha. In a climate of rampant idolatry, Pinchas, a grandson of Aharon who is known as a great zealot, takes a spear and stabs through an Israelite Chieftain who was in the act of consorting with the daughter of a Midianite priest. At the beginning of this week's parasha which bears his name, Pinchas is rewarded with the inheritance of the priestly line, which began with Aaron. The portion continues with a description of Israel's struggles with the Midianites, and then a census is taken as part of the preparation for battle. As a footnote to the listing of the census, a story is told about a man named Zelophechad who died of natural causes in the wilderness without leaving a son. His five daughters come to Moses to complain that their family would lose their father's property because daughters are not allowed to inherit. Moses consults with God, who agrees that the laws need to be changed. Joshua is formally appointed as Moses' successor, and the portion concludes with a review of all the sacrificial offerings of the festivals.
