Photo Friday: She Is Clothed with Strength and Dignity

Jewish bride prays at Tomb of Sarah in Cave of the Patriarchs


“She is clothed with strength and dignity;
she can laugh at the days to come.
She speaks with wisdom,
and faithful instruction is on her tongue.”
(Proverbs 31:25-26)

As we celebrate the mothers and women who have raised us and taught us and loved us this weekend, we bring you a photo from the Holy Land of the Tomb of Sarah, Israel’s Matriarch. In this picture, a Jewish bride prays at the holy site before she enters into a life of strength and dignity as a wife and mother. Shabbat shalom, friends.
