WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE A "WOMAN OF VALOR", OR IN HEBREW "ESHET CHAYIL"?
Chayil translates to “power and army” and eshet translates to “woman and wife.”
In essence, a woman of valor is a powerful, resourceful, self-sufficient and feminine being. The word binahtit corresponds to the sphere Binah on the Tree of Life. In Kabbalah, the Tree of Life—or the blueprint of Creation—contains ten different vessels (spheres) that work with one another to create a state of harmony. Binah literally corresponds to the energy of the Divine Mother.
A Binahtit is a woman who actively chooses to become an instrument of the Divine Mother. Therefore, binahtit is an expression of the attributes of binah—joy, inspiration, patience, accountability, passion, and infinite possibilities. Navigating your own path of Binahtit takes a tribe. As we all strive individually to make an impact, we often need support to persist along the path of valor.
