At the same time, the book can be useful to their own husbands, fathers , teachers, and anyone interested in this important issue.

Much has been written recently for the Jewish woman and about her, but this book fills an important gap in the literature of this kind .

To answer those who ask about the place that the Torah devotes to women in the general scheme of the world , there were books and articles , an advocate , and they tried to explain what is obvious to everyone who lives in the Torah Jew : the importance and dignity of the role that targets the Jewish women and that they are so faithfully execute throughout our history .

On the other hand, there were publications on special Dinim addressed to women , first and foremost - the laws Taarat Amishpaha , family purity . Details of these laws , as well as their rationality - to the extent that we can try to comprehend it - occupied many authors .

However, no one had made no attempt to piece together the provisions relating to the overall performance of Mitzvot women. However , anyone familiar with the laws of the Torah knows that - except for the laws of family purity of life, Shabbat candles and Challah offices entrusted to it Jewish woman - women are subject to the discipline of absolute words of the Torah . As for men , their life at every moment is dictated by the Divine command of the Torah , while at the same time, as their role is definitely different from that of men , there are differences in many provisions of the law .

This book is an attempt to bring together all these special provisions . And not only for ease of reference . Introducing the all-encompassing picture of a woman doing its job in the cycle of everyday life , this book is a plan that Avodat Hashem , which should pervade and shape a woman's life , and we can expect that for many it will and leadership and inspiration in the pursuit of high-end .
