Daily Quote
In that generation the women repaired what the men broke down. The men gave their gold for the making of the Calf; the women refused. The men had been unwilling to enter the Land [in wake of the Spies' report]; the women [i.e., the daughters of Tzelafchad] petitioned to receive an inheritance in the Land
  –Midrash Rabbah (on Numbers 27:1)
