Pinchas in a Nutshell

The name of the Parshah, "Pinchas," refers to Phineas, who zealously avenged G‑d’s name, and it is found in Numbers 25:11.

Aaron’s grandson Pinchas is rewarded for his act of zealotry in killing the Simeonite prince Zimri and the Midianite princess who was his paramour: G‑d grants him a covenant of peace and the priesthood.
