The Tribe of Yehuda (Judah)

Lion

Leah named her son Yehuda (Judah) based on the Hebrew word for “thankfulness”. Rashi said that she was thankful because she had more than her expected fraction of Yaakov’s sons [Rashi on Bereishis 29:35]. Yehuda was Leah’s fourth child. What fraction of Yaakov’s sons did Leah have after giving birth to Yehuda?

4/12 = 1/3rd
