Proud to be part of the Jewish People
When you said " We're all gearing up for Passover" I felt such a sense of Jewish Pride. Thank God I have the merit to prepare for Pesach.
Pesach Kasher veSamayach.

We all need to rise up to save the day, today
Fascinating way you have told this. The men divorced(seperated themselves) from their wives so they would not conceive children. If the women didn't draw there husbands into the bed chambers Moses wouldn't of never been born. The women gave birth to there liberation. That was pure and if they hadn't acted on that, they would of stayed in Eygpt. WOW! Women today still can give birth to liberation in many different ways, some with a child that will do great things for Hashem, they themselves can get liberated and help other women. By living a Godly life, from the inside out. By speaking out on issues that can save the day, today. So many different ways of giving birth to the plans of Hashem. This reminds us it starts in the home, and what comes from that can change a whole nation. The most important point is our liberation to worship Hashem, in our home and out in the open. To be portable, (moveable) to go to the next place to higher ground when Hashem says, time to move on. You have more liberation to experience! Lori you made it come alive, for today. Thanks.

Thank you for this reminder, Lori. It's time to bring Jewish women front and center---but not to stand there alone. Rather to join with the men who have been and are there. It is only when we all stand together that we are whole. What makes sense about denying at least half of our beauty, our intelligence and our love as a people? See our women for all they have been and are----then we can be whole. Shalom.

Wow! Jewish women stand tall and proud!
What an amazing story and inspirational message. Thanks. May we all have a beautiful and more importantly, meaningful Pesach. Chag Kosher V'Sameach.

I was procrastinating -- seeing what was new on aish.com instead of tackling today's pre-Pesach list -- and now I'm inspired! Thank you so much.
