Chronicles Of Crises In Our Communities

By:

Another benefit I can think of: mothers are usually more often available to help their children (both boys and girls) with their homework, and their own education offers them an incredible advantage they would otherwise lack.

Bais Yaakov: way to go! Dear Readers,

You’ve made some fabulous arguments, pro and con. As with most everything, moderation seems to be the key. While it is important for our girls to be well versed in, for example, halacha, particularly where our day-to-day existence comes into play, for many the varied studies and assignments are way too demanding.

This is not to minimize a woman’s role in the household. In fact, Moshe was commanded to speak first to the “House of Yaakov” (literally “Bais Yaakov” – a reference to the woman of the house) and then to the “Children of Israel,” the men.

Shema b’ni mussar avicha v’al titosh toras imecha, we say each morning. “Listen my son to the rebuke of your father and do not abandon the Torah of your mother.” This saying from Mishlei comes to teach that while fathers are duty-bound to learn Torah literally, mothers instinctively imbue the “home” with the true essence of Torah, by permeating it with spirituality and holiness.

Enough said. * * * * *
