Pharaoh’s Daughter

Pharaoh’s Daughter: A Woman Worthy of Raising Moses

In Exodus, the daughter of Pharaoh is presented as an empathetic princess who saves the infant Moses after discovering him in the Nile and raises him as one of her own. Late Second Temple and rabbinic writers reimagine her based on their own values, and even give her a name.
