By Yalda Tovah "Discipline gives total freedom; it allows you to go beyond your limitations, to break through boundaries and reach the highest goal. The path to discipline will not only save a person's life, it will also give it meaning. By introducing him to deeper joys and deeper longings, by creating a silence in which the whisper of the heart can be heard.
In Judaism, G-d is neither male nor female The Talmud says both good and bad things about women Women are not required to perform certain commandments Certain commandments are reserved specifically for women The first of the month is a minor festival for women Men and women sit separately in traditional synagogues The idea of Lilith as a feminist hero is based on a questionable source The role of women in traditional Judaism has been grossly misrepresented and misunderstood.
The position of women is not nearly as lowly as many modern people think; in fact, the position of women in halakhah Jewish Law that dates back to the biblical period is in many ways better than the position of women under American civil law as recently as a century ago.
Many of the important feminist leaders of the 20th century Gloria Steinem, for example, and Betty Friedan are Jewish women, and some commentators have suggested that this is no coincidence: In traditional Judaism, women are for the most part seen as separate but equal. Women's obligations and responsibilities are different from men's, but no less important in fact, in some ways, women's responsibilities are considered more important, as we shall see.
The equality of men and women begins at the highest possible level: In Judaism, unlike traditional Christianity, G-d has never been viewed as exclusively male or masculine. Judaism has always maintained that G-d has both masculine and feminine qualities.
As one Chasidic rabbi explained it to me, G-d has no body, no genitalia, therefore the very idea that G-d is male or female is patently absurd.
We refer to G-d using masculine terms simply for convenience's sake, because Hebrew has no neutral gender; G-d is no more male than a table is. Both man and woman were created in the image of G-d. According to most Jewish scholars, "man" was created in Gen. According to traditional Judaism, women are endowed with a greater degree of "binah" intuition, understanding, intelligence than men.
The rabbis inferred this from the fact that woman was "built" Gen. Women did not participate in the idolatry regarding the Golden Calf.
See Rosh Chodesh below. Some traditional sources suggest that women are closer to G-d's ideal than men. Women have held positions of respect in Judaism since biblical times. Miriam is considered one of the liberators of the Children of Israelalong with her brothers Moses and Aaron.
One of the Judges Deborah was a woman. Seven of the 55 prophets of the Bible were women they are included in the list of biblical prophets.
The Ten Commandments require respect for both mother and father. Note that the father comes first in Ex. There were many learned women of note.
The Talmud and later rabbinical writings speak of the wisdom of Berurya, the wife of Rabbi Meir. In several instances, her opinions on halakhah Jewish Law were accepted over those of her male contemporaries. In the ketubah marriage contract of Rabbi Akiba 's son, the wife is obligated to teach the husband Torah!
Many rabbis over the centuries have been known to consult their wives on matters of Jewish law relating to the woman's role, such as laws of kashrut and women's cycles. The wife of a rabbi is referred to as a rebbetzin, practically a title of her own, which should give some idea of her significance in Jewish life.
There can be no doubt, however, that the Talmud also has many negative things to say about women. Various rabbis at various times describe women as lazy, jealous, vain and gluttonous, prone to gossip and particularly prone to the occult and witchcraft.
Men are repeatedly advised against associating with women, although this is usually because of man's lust rather than because of any shortcoming in women. It is worth noting that the Talmud also has negative things to say about men, frequently describing men as particularly prone to lust and forbidden sexual desires.
Women are discouraged from pursuing higher education or religious pursuits, but this seems to be primarily because women who engage in such pursuits might neglect their primary duties as wives and mothers.
The rabbis are not concerned that women are not spiritual enough; rather, they are concerned that women might become too spiritually devoted. The rights of women in traditional Judaism are much greater than they were in the rest of Western civilization until the 20th century.
Women had the right to buy, sell, and own property, and make their own contracts, rights which women in Western countries including America did not have until about years ago.
In fact, Proverbs Women have the right to be consulted with regard to their marriage. Marital sex is regarded as the woman's right, and not the man's. Men do not have the right to beat or mistreat their wives, a right that was recognized by law in many Western countries until a few hundred years ago.
In cases of rape, a woman is generally presumed not to have consented to the intercourse, even if she enjoyed it, even if she consented after the sexual act began and declined a rescue!XVIDEOS Offering to become a submissive wife free.
