  • Bityah, daughter of pharaoh, definitely deserves some credit. She was a remarkable woman who “converted” to Monotheism before Sinai. Sources say she gets full credit as if she bore Moses.

    By the way, there is a hint about the daughter of Putiel, who Elieazar Ben Aaron married. Both “Yitro” and “Eleazar Ben Aaron” have the value 616. The same value as “Ha-Torah”

    Mem Shin Heh is found exactly 616 times in The Torah.
