Is Gd a Man or a Woman?


“These are names of Gd, sometimes masculine and sometimes feminine… Not only these names,are sometimes male and sometimes female, but there is no Divine Name or Trait which is not mentioned sometimes one way and sometimes another way, other than those words which are specifically masculine, like רחום [merciful] and חנון [gracious] and פוקד עון [who remembers sin], which cannot appear in feminine form. But the Names are sometimes masculine and sometimes feminine, and there is no doubt that this true."

(Ramban, ha’Emunah v’haBitachon Perek 2)

Have a great day,
