Rachel (Hebrew: רָחֵל, Modern Rakhél, Tiberian Rāḥēl Arabic: راحیل, Rāḥīl‎) was the favorite of Biblical patriarch Jacob's two wives as well as the mother of Joseph and Benjamin who helped father the twelve tribes of Israel (along with their brothers). The name "Rachel" is from an unused root meaning: "to journey as a ewe that is a good traveller." [2][3] Rachel was the daughter of Laban and the younger sister of Leah, Jacob's first wife. Jacob was her first cousin and she was the younger niece of Rebekah.
