Daughters of Zelophehad: Mahlah, Noa, Hoglah, Milcah, and Tirzah—five daughters of Zelophehad, who passed away in the desert leaving behind no sons. These righteous women approached Moses, requesting to receive their father’s portion in the Land of Canaan. G-d instructed Moses to comply with said request.
