Daily Torah Thought - 3/14


[The Talmud draws the following well-known lesson from the Torah's odd use of the term 'built' where 'made' would have been more lexically appropriate.]

"It is written, 'And Gd built [ויבן] the side He had taken from the man, into a woman.' This teaches that HaShem placed greater understanding [בינה] into a woman than into a man."

(Talmud, Niddah 45b)

Have a great day,
