Shma bni musar avicha ve’al titosh torat imecha.
there are two parts and two ways to learning the holy scripts
the muscular and the feminine
the world has lots of the muscular outlook on the holy scripts on life and how to live
we also have evidence from our history of women who managed to break through the patriarchal wall of the
world and give their comments to the philosophical world and not just prepare dinner and take care of the children and house.
such as, bruria the wife of Rabbi Meir, who loved to sit in the learning sessions and give in her comments.
not only that, but she used to slap the young guys who didn’t pay enough respect and seriousness to the learning or prayer.
We have women profits in our History.
and even in closer times to ours,
we have the sister of one of the chabad rabbis who used to know more than her brother to the extent that he would ask her sometimes before giving an answer.
The daughter of Reb Nchman of Breslev (Breslow) was also known for giving out blessings and advice to students who missed her father and needed a spiritual , holy person to cling on to after her father, Reb Nachman passed away.
All the way from our forefather Avraham, who says about his wife Sara, to the angels, my wife is in the tent, being understood by some sages, that he is saying, my wives wisdom is hidden “in the tent”, meaning higher than i know or you will ever know.
in general, in prestigious Jewish families, some of the leading rabbis of the some places , women were lifted up to making the important decisions, they were treated by their Husbands, with respect and aw. many of them were in business or were learning Torah for them selves and taking time to uplift their souls.
Allthou, Most women were simple and didn’t take the time educate them selves on jewish studies or any other studies for that matter, but that was the patriarchal world they lived in.
In the jewish philosophical world there was awerness to let women step out of the patriarchal world to the place they wanted. they were was always trying to lift women up.
The scripts and jewish walks of life (halacha) that give us a shovinist feeling are still better than the way women ere treated in the rest of the world, which was much closer to the way we see women treated like the possession of their father or husband in nowdays in Muslim countries.
In our generation, we see women who run a house hold in unreasonable financial data along the side of multitasking, work and full household with no help of their mother ar any other help, and rasing amazing children , with sometime no help from the father even. some of their men our so-called in charge of the spiritual development of our culture, sitting to learn the holy scripts, but not knowing life. not knowing anything about, emotional development or finance.
those women could probably develop the emotional side of the world better then many of their husbands, but instead they are being taught that they develop their own emotional and spiritual sides through being in the kitchen or making money.
some of these women stop believing in the power of the Torah and jewish wisdom, because for many years they don’t learn it or meditate on it. its been stolen away from them. in other cases, so many women collapse. in either case they can not give our tradition in a succesful way to the next generation. this is part of the reason we see so many children of people who made “Tshuvah” become non religious at all.
We are privileged to live in a generation, when women are waking up to the fact that a woman, just like a man can not live with a spiritual world of her own.
this initiative, is a home to develop and impower us women to take our spiritual world back into our hands, to learn our sages wisdom, through our feminine eyes, so that we can first equire those powers for our own souls, then give it to our husbands, and children, and to the all world around us.
We have a spiritual and emotional responsibilaty to make it a better world.
the world has to have the torat Imecha, the toarh of our women.
Lets do it.
We have a week program, a month or a semester program or a year.
For a short program or for year cntact us for details
