Single Woman of Valor

URL: http://www.jewishjournal.com/singles/article/single_woman_of_valor_20041126

I am a woman of valor. But nobody is singing my weekly praises. Oh no, that's saved for the same lucky women who get the Pottery Barn registry, the rock on their hand and a man in their bed. According to Jewish tradition, every Shabbat, a husband sings "Eshet Chayil" -- "A Woman of Valor" (WOV) -- to his wife. This Friday night, I listened as my friend, Dan, told his wife, Jen, "Her price is far above rubies ... she's robed in strength and dignity, and cheerfully faces whatever may come." All true.
