JWW in Congo: Women of Valor

URL: http://www.jewishjournal.com/bloggish/item/jww_in_congo_women_of_valor_20091109

I have been thinking during the last four days about the definition of a woman of valor, something we talk about in our Jewish tradition. Our time in the Congo has demonstrated to me, once again, the anomalies of life on the African continent. This is my sixth visit to Africa but only my first to the Congo. The experience has, as previously reflected, demonstrated the heights to which a visit to Africa can take a casual visitor - the extraordinary scenery and indomitable spirit of the people; but also demonstrates the depths of despair which a visit to Africa can occasion.
