The Secret History of the Ageless Serach bas Asher

 


The secret history of the ageless Serach

The month of Av: Calamity followed by comfort. As we conclude our reading of the book of Numbers the Children of Israel are getting anxious about getting into Canaan and getting hold of their tribal inheritances.

All except for Gad and Reuven who have their hearts set on the green pastures east of the Jordan.

The five daughters of Tzelophchad make yet another well-earned appearance, but who is the mysterious Serach, daughter of Asher?
