In Feminine Faith, fourth Rebbe of Chabad, Rabbi Shmuel of Lubavitch, delivers a profound exploration of the unique gifts of the feminine soul and its connection to the essence of Divine reality.
Written towards the end of 1879, Feminine Faith explores why the Rosh Chodesh-New Moon is celebrated primarily by women, why the women did not participate in the sin of Golden Calf and how women posses a natural, inherent belief in the Divine.
Part of the popular Chasidic Heritage Series published by the Kehot Publication Society, Feminine Faith speaks in a manner once profound yet accessible to today’s modern women and girls.
“It is remarkable how an essay written by a Chasidic Rebbe in 1879 can bring thought-provoking clarity to a subject so blurred with ambiguity as is the matter of gender delineation in today’s day and age,” says Rabbi Yosef B. Friedman, of Kehot Publication Society.
Translated from the original Hebrew by Rabbi Shais Taub, author of the Tanya Map, the discourse is highlighted with copious annotations which help the novice navigate the study of a Chasidic discourse.
While the Chasidic concepts discussed in Feminine Faith speak to all, girls approaching bat-mitzvah may like the challenge of studying this and exploring the deep Chasidic ideas that touch on their own unique identity as they reach the ages of mitzvot.
Kehot Publication Society is the official publishing house of the Chabad-Lubavitch movement.
