Make a Dedication

Rabbi Eytan Yehudah Dzikowski
וַיִּקַּ֨ח עַמְרָ֜ם אֶת־יוֹכֶ֤בֶד דֹּֽדָתוֹ֙ ל֣וֹ לְאִשָּׁ֔ה וַתֵּ֣לֶד ל֔וֹ אֶֽת־אַהֲרֹ֖ן וְאֶת־מֹשֶׁ֑ה וּשְׁנֵי֙ חַיֵּ֣י עַמְרָ֔ם שֶׁ֧בַע וּשְׁלֹשִׁ֛ים וּמְאַ֖ת שָׁנָֽה׃
Amram took to wife his father’s sister Yocheved, and she bore him Aaron and Moses; and the span of Amram’s life was 137 years.
Yocheved marrying Amram is one of only 3 instances where the Torah mentions the wives of the leaders.
This is to show that their offspring came from two illustrious parents.
The other 2 instances are: Aaron marrying Elisheva, the sister of Nachshon from Shevet Yehudah, and Moshe’s wife, Tziporah.
