Rebecca’s Mother

Question: What is the name of the Rivka (Rebecca) the Matriarch’s mother?

Answer: There is a Medrash Agada that writes that Devorah (or Deborah, Rebecca’s wet-nurse) was Rivka’s mother.
The Medrash also says that Devorah was the daughter of Utz (Besual’s brother, see end of the Torah portion of Vayera).

All the Best,
Avraham Yeshaya Cohen
