Here is something the sisters will appreciate. “According to traditional Judaism, women are endowed with a greater degree of "banah" (intuition, understanding, intelligence) than men. The rabbis inferred this from the fact that woman was "built" (Gen. 2:22) rather than "formed" (Gen. 2:7), and the Hebrew root of "build" has the same consonants as the word "banah." It has been said that the matriarchs (Sarah, Rebecca, Rachel and Leah) were superior to the patriarchs (Abraham, Isaac and Jacob) in prophecy. Women did not participate in the idolatry regarding the Golden Calf. Some traditional sources suggest that women are closer to God's ideal than men. http://www.jewfaq.org/women.htm “And Jehovah God proceeded to form the man out of dust from the ground. . .” (Gen 2:7) The Hebrew word here is yatsar meaning to form, fashion, or frame. For the woman, “And Jehovah God proceeded to build the rib that he had taken from the man into a woman . . .” (Gen 2:22) The Hebrew word here is banah meaning to build, or construct.Traditional Judaism spells the word binah. Did you know that 7 of the 55 prophets in the Bible were women? According to traditional Judaism, they were: Sarah (Gen 11:29 - 23:20) Miriam (Ex 15:20-21; Num. 12:1-12:15, 20:1 Deborah (Judges 4:1 - 5:31) Hannah (I Sam 1:1 - 2:21) Abigail (I Sam 25:1 - 25:42) Huldah (II Kings 22:14-20) Esther (Esther) Also, according to traditional Judaism, Daniel was not considered a prophet. Why? According to Judaism, Daniel is not one of the 55 prophets. His writings include visions of the future, which we believe to be true; however, his mission was not that of a prophet. His visions of the future were never intended to be proclaimed to the people; they were designed to be written down for future generations. Thus, they are Writings, not Prophecies, and are classified accordingly.
