Make a Dedication

Rabbi Eytan Yehudah Dzikowski
Why is Serach the only daughter mentioned?
וְשֵׁ֥ם בַּת־אָשֵׁ֖ר שָֽׂרַח׃
The name of Asher’s daughter was Serah.
Although no other daughters are mentioned, Serach is mentioned because she was the one who gave Yaakov the good news that Yosef was alive.
As a result, she merited to live a very long life and to enter Heaven alive, accompanied by 600,000 angels.
Others say that this Serach is actually a stepdaughter from another father.
