Johanna's Parsha was Pinchas. The image of a peacock (a favorite image for her) includes the name of the parsha, the date of her Bat-Mitzvah, June 22, 2013. Pinchas includes a census and and the total counted 601,135 is included, as well as the name of the five daughters of Zelophehad (Mahlah, Noa, Hoglah, Milcah and Tirzah) who approached Moses, Eleazar, the chieftains, and the assembly at the entrance of the Tabernacle, saying that their father had no sons, and asking that they be given a land holding. Moses brings the case before God who instructed Moses to transfer their share of land to them, setting the rule that daughters could inherit (in the absence of a male heir.)
