Aharon’s grandson is rewarded for killing the Israelite man and the Moabite princess from last week (Balak). The Israelites participate in a census that counts 601,730 men between the ages of twenty and sixty. Lots are drawn for land, and Tzelofchad’s daughters cause the rewriting of the laws of inheritance when they petition for land since their father died without sons. Moshe prepares Yehoshua (Joshua) to take over for him. And last, we review all the offerings, both daily and for the festivals.

Links: Here are the Aish, Torah.org, and Chabad pages on Pinchas. Here are some coloring sheets, a parsha song, and a fun video from Itche Kadoozy. Check out this cute parsha summary and this cartoon.
