How do we possibly convey the love, respect and gratitude we feel for the women in our lives – and for the fortitude and accomplishments of women everywhere?
In Judaism one option is Eishet Chayil, an ancient poem from the Book of Proverbs traditionally sung on Friday nights. “A Woman of Valor, who can find? She is more precious than pearls,” the poem declares. With each recitation of Eishet Chayil, we have the opportunity to connect with the women we love and to acknowledge the successes and sacrifices of all women.
Whether you sing this prayer every week or are interested in starting a new tradition in your home, this book helps you connect to the text emotionally and intellectually.
“Give her the reward she has earned,” Eishet Chayil concludes, “let her deeds bring her praise in the gates.”
We hope this book sings to you with a full heart, that you may experience the depth of appreciation this poem offers and ultimately make your Friday nights more meaningful.
