Dan ben Yaacov Avinu

Dan was the Son of Jacob the Patriarch and Bilhah the handmaid of Rachel. He is one of the 12 Tribes.

Born: Aram Naharayim, 1566 b.c.e.
Died: Egypt, 1439 b.c.e.
 

Dan was the Son of Jacob the Patriarch and Bilha the handmaid of Rachel. He is one of the 12 Tribes.

Dan's sons: Hushim (Genesis 46:23) - [that is , his sons were] energetic and astute [individuals] and innumerable (Targum Yonatan, Bereshit 46:23).

Dan's sons: Hushim (Genesis 46:23) - numerous as a forest of reeds (Bava Batra 143b).

Hushim, the son of Dan is the one who smote Esau, when he tried to prevent Yaacov's sons to bury him in Mearat Hamachpela, the cave of the Patriarchs, in Hevron (Sota 13b).

In the merit of Dan [her handmaiden's son], she [Rachel] was granted conception (Bereshit Rababah 73:4)

Dan was buried in his children's city, Eshthaol (Sefer Hayashar, end of Yehoshua). He died at the age of 127.

May the merit of the tzaddik  Dan ben Yaacov Avinu  protect us all, Amen.
