comment What was the name of Tzipora's mother?
This is a really hard Midrash to understand, as this sefer asks: 1) If so, she would have been three months old when she saved Moshe, and she was already talking by then! 2) Why does the Midrash say he didn't want to marry both of them because he didn't want to marry two sisters; just marrying Tziporah was a problem of marrying his sister.

@MosheP While I am certainly not claiming that this is the "pshat" answer, why doesn't it answer the question?

comment Can a non-Yisrael get Maftir Yonah?
@DoubleAA I am not aware of anywhere else. I davened at a shul once where the Rov was a Cohen and would always get Maftir Yonah, so I was pretty sure there was a kulah somewhere, but this is the only thing I have managed to find so far.
