Unnamed women in the Torah, so far: Noach's wife-Naama, Yishmoel's wife-Riva, Lot's wife-Iris, any suggestions for Rivka's mother? she is mentioned many times in this weeks sedra but not by name


1 Answer 1


Rabbi Chaim Kanievsky in his Sefer טעמא דקרא brings down (on Parshash Chayei Sarah) that Rivka's mothers name was Devorah, indeed the same Devorah that the Torah referres to as the מינקת. His source is Midrash Agadah Parshas Vayishlach!

    @GershonGold Thanks [and for the source]! :-) It happens to be an extremely useful Sefer
