The mission of the Jewish woman in Shabbat in the context of the Ashkenazi tradition

Inna Hudyma

Abstract


Our era, characterized by the breaking of old stereotypes of thinking, ideological schemes and the formation of new spiritual foundations of social development, acutely actualizes the problem of person's identification and the formation of his/her spiritual and moral values. The article reveals the role of women in the Ashkenazi tradition, a place that the Torah assigns to women in the general scheme of Jewish ritual life. The Torah texts in which the role of women in a family are analyzed in detail. The study clarifies the importance and dignity of the mission that is assigned to Jewish women and which they so faithfully carry out throughout history. The urgency of the study of the above problems is also necessitated by the generalization of the spiritual experience of Judaism, in-depth study of the patterns of new functioning of religions in the conditions of dramatic social changes, their praxeological manifestations, analysis of the mechanism of spiritual and cultural continuity in the practice of religious communities. Materials and articles can be used by specialists in the field of religious and theological studies, students, professors, while writing scientific papers, as well as at lectures related to the study of theology.
