Where would we be without the Jewish mother’s intuition?
Sarah Imeinu sensed that Yishmael had veered away from the correct path, and Rivkah was the one who saw through Eisav’s pretentious piety. It takes a special perception to distinguish between surface and reality. Yes, the surface might feel right, smell and look right, but if it isn’t right, we need to know it and stay away.
Perhaps this motherly intuition is needed now more than ever. Pretty much every organization or group is busy “saving the world.” We need the age-old – and, alas, often hidden – sense of yiras shamayim to determine which ones really do so.
Who will be the bubby of our children, who will be the bubby if not us?
Wishing you a wonderful Shabbos,
