Gershom

Additional Links

First-born son of Moses and Zipporah (Exodus 2:22, 18:3). The circumcision of a child of Moses described in Exodus 4:25 is evidently that of Gershom, but the Midrash refers it to Eliezer. As to the Gershom mentioned in Judges 18:30 see Jonathan (son of Gershom). Gershom is mentioned in 1 Chronicles 23:15-16, 26:24 as the founder of a Levitic family.
