6 Women and Moses

Having just come through the Passover season, this year I’ve been thinking much about Moses and the women in his life. The story of the exodus from Egypt has six strong women, unsung heroes, without whom the story could never have happened. These women were all courageous. Some of them actively disobeyed the laws of the time, stood against the status quo, acted bravely, and were instruments of God’s will during a time of slavery and oppression. Two of these six women were not even Jews.

For the past few months, I have thought a lot about becoming a mother. Don’t get too excited – I am not pregnant or anything. However; I have had a few moments recently where I thought “Do I even want to bear a child and bring her/him into this awfully unjust world that we are living in today?”
