Description: When the Jews served the golden calf during their sojourn in the wilderness, says the Midrash, the women refused to join them. Feminine Faith traces the roots of the feminine within the supernal realms, and explores its relationship to women and how it translated into their aversion for unholy and ungodly worship. Why are women more sensitive than men to G-ds role in earthly events and His mastery over creation? In this discourse, Rabbi Shmuel Schneersohn, fourth leader of Chabad Lubavitch (1834-1882), explores G-ds unity and immanence in the world, and the innate sensitivity that women posses to spirituality.
Women, and especially girls approaching Bat Mitzvah, may like the challenge of studying this and exploring the deep Chasidic ideas that touch on their own unique identity.
