Tazria: Chapter 2

"Who can find a woman of worth"


A woman of worth and a virtuous woman is said to be the Congregation of Yisrael. "Her price is far above rubies" means those lofty holy rubies that are the mysteries and inner meaning of the Torah. God may safely trust in the Congregation of Yisrael, which is why He put her in charge over the world. She bestows goodness on the world and not evil; the Tree of Life, Zeir Anpin, sends her life, that is Mochin from Binah, and shines upon her.
