Inheritance in the Torah compared to Israeli
The laws of inheritance in the Torah are ignored
in the secular state of Israel, and even regarded as chauvinistic. In
today's Zionist state with the lawyers, guardians and trustees, money is more
important than Judaic Law.
The Torah states;
- Then drew near the daughters of Zeloph'ehad the son of Hepher, son of
Gilead, son of Machir, son of Manas'seh, from the families of Manas'seh the
son of Joseph. The names of his daughters were: Mahlah, Noah, Hoglah, Milcah,
- And they stood before Moses, and before Elea'zar the priest, and before
the leaders and all the congregation, at the door of the tent of meeting,
- "Our father died in the wilderness; he was not among the company of those
who gathered themselves together against the LORD in the company of Korah, but
died for his own sin; and he had no sons.
- Why should the name of our father be taken away from his family, because
he had no son? Give to us a possession among our father's brethren."
- Moses brought their case before the LORD.
- And the LORD said to Moses,
- "The daughters of Zeloph'ehad are right; you shall give them possession of
an inheritance among their father's brethren and cause the inheritance of
their father to pass to them.
- And you shall say to the people of Israel, 'If a man dies, and has no son,
then you shall cause his inheritance to pass to his daughter.
- And if he has no daughter, then you shall give his inheritance to his
- And if he has no brothers, then you shall give his inheritance to his
- And if his father has no brothers, then you shall give his inheritance to
his kinsman that is next to him of his family, and he shall possess it. And it
shall be to the people of Israel a statute and ordinance, as the LORD
Therefore, if and only if there are no brothers, the inheritance goes to the
daughters, otherwise the women in the family including the widow, does not get
any inheritance, but in today's secular state of Israel, these Biblical laws are
not followed. Women are getting equal inheritance compared to their
brothers and in some cases, the wife gets full inheritance and is left to decide
the amounts to give to her sons and daughters, with disregard to the Laws of
Moses in the Zionist state.
