Woman of Valor, Eshet Chayil

You can find an index of all the 31 Days of Encountering Judaism here.

Rachel Held Evans' book "A Guide to Biblical Womanhood" and her blog first introduced me to:

(A) the (generally) evangelical Christian belief that Proverbs 31 is a model for the Christian wife and mother at home;
(B) that this is not how Orthodox Jews use this text.


I can say it no better than this interview Rachel had on her blog, so please read it.
