Welcome to the Jewish Women podcast, where we learn about the lives of biblical women and how they can help us navigate being a Jewish Woman in a confusing world.

    Chana: The True Meaning of Prayer

    Chana: The True Meaning of Prayer

    Chana was the mother of Shmuel, one of our nation's greatest prophets. She was childless for many years and suffered greatly at the hands of her husband's second wife, Penina. The Navi goes into great detail about her story, and it is the Haftarah on the first day of Rosh Hashana.

    Why do we read about Chana on Rosh Hashana? What is it about her story that contributes something to this very holy day, and what lessons can we learn?

    Bruriah: Embracing Our Femininity

    Bruriah: Embracing Our Femininity

    Bruriah was the daughter of one of the Ten Martyrs, the wife of Rabbi Meir Ba'al NaNes, and one of the most righteous, outspoken women of her time. She introduced new concepts into Jewish law, routinely schooled the great men around her, and ardently supported her husband and her family. Yet many of the stories mentioned about her are worrisome and strange, and it is difficult to know what to take from them. Ultimately, is Bruriah a role model, or a cautionary tale?

    Rachel, Wife of Rabbi Akiva: Maintaining Your Focus

    Rachel, Wife of Rabbi Akiva: Maintaining Your Focus

    Often times, when we get inspired, we start something new, make a change, do something awesome, only to have it fall by the wayside when things get tough, or boring, or routine. How do we maintain our focus and not lost that initial spark? Rachel took the ultimate chance by marrying Rabbi Akiva on the very distant hope that he would become a great scholar. How did she keep going even when he disappeared for twenty-four years, left her with nothing, and gave her no help? Find out in this week's podcast.

    Michal Daughter of Shaul: Challenging Our Beliefs

    Michal Daughter of Shaul: Challenging Our Beliefs

    Michal, daughter of Shaul, was the much-beloved wife of King David. She helped him escape her father's assassination attempts, remained loyal to him throughout years of separation, and loved him for years. Yet she remained unable to accept her husband for who he was and ended up being punished severely for not supporting David when he wanted her there with him. What is the lesson here? Is it a lesson in how to treat your husband? Or is there a deeper issue that we can take out of this incident?
