Women Loved the Land

We learn from Parshat Pinchas the love for the Land of Israel by the daughters of צלפחד. They pleaded with Moshe for the rights to an inheritance. They did not want to be deprived simply because they were female and there were no male heirs.

We find that one of the reasons why we fast on Tisha B’Av was because of the crying for nothing instigated by the spies and their evil report. We learn that the decree not to enter Eretz Yisrael to that entire generation, was given on Tisha B’Av.

The ספר התודעה points out that this decree applies only to males between the ages of twenty and sixty. It did not apply to any of the women because they did believe the evil report of the spies and they deeply lOved the land.
