Women in Judaism
Tour about Glikl bas Juda Leib for grade school students
Using the biography of this extraordinary woman, the tour answers questions about the challenges of business and gender roles in the seventeenth century for students in grades 5 to 13.
Is the compatibility of career and family only a twenty-first-century question? Glikl bas Juda Leib (1646–1724) was a wife, a mother of twelve, and a successful businesswoman. In her memoirs, she demonstrates that she took her role as mother just as seriously as her position as a respected tradesperson. Glikl describes her marriage, her thoughts about child-raising and Jewish piousness, and her career, which took her on perilous journeys.
