Truly Great Jewish Women—Then & Now by Rabbi Y.Y. Rubinstein
Learning about the great personalities of Tanach, we find ourselves in awe. Inspiration, though, generally only lasts when you realize that the lives, struggles, and challenges of these greats, find parallels within our own lives and our own challenges. As you will discover in these pages, the most crucial battles that were fought for Klal Yisrael were often fought by great Jewish women. This book reveals often little-known aspects of the lives of some of the most well-known righteous women of Tanach—like Sarah, Rivkah, Rachel, Leah, Tamar, Esther, and Rus—and uses them to tell their stories anew. Then, after every chapter about these great women, readers will be introduced to a contemporary Jewish woman who walked or walks in their footsteps, and hear her story—women like Rebbetzin Miriam Salomon, Lady Amélie Jakobovits, Mrs. Gigi Weiss, Mrs. Rachely Plancey, and Mrs. Sarah Rivkah Kohn, among others. Yes, the wisdom, compassion, and courage of the mothers and heroines of the Jewish People are present in every generation. Written by world-renowned lecturer and author Rabbi Y. Y. Rubinstein, Truly Great Jewish Women—Then & Now is a book for every Jewish house-hold. It is a book that will educate and encourage you, as you rediscover the women who created Klal Yisrael, and become inspired by women of our times who carry on the mission of our holy foremothers.
