If you listen to Baruch teach long enough, you will hear him mention that in the Bible, when women are prominent in the passage, the topic is usually about redemption. Today I was reading an article about the prominence of women in the history of the Jewish people. At this time of year, it is understandable to remember the importance of women in the whole story of Passover.
We remember the faithfulness of the midwives. They risked their own lives in order to preserve the Jewish people. We think of Miriam, Moses’ sister, who placed him in the basket. And even Pharoah’s daughter played a role in the preservation of the Children of Israel.
All of these women played a significant role in raising the generations which were to receive the Torah at Sinai and later enter the Promised land, the everlasting inheritance of the Jewish people.
This is just a reminder to be devoted to the calling G-d has for you, so that you will be in a position to do the work He has planned for you. We shouldn’t just be waiting around. We need to make sure that we are in a place to be obedient to His calling and will for our lives.
