Eishes Chayil Welcome to an illustrated presentation of Eishes Chayil

Commentary by Rabbi Yaakov Iskowitz

Illustrations by Mrs. Ester Prizent

Eishes Chayil was written by Shlomo Ha-Melech. It is part of Sefer Mishlei, a Sefer (Book) of great wisdom. The Rabbis said that the “Eishes Chayil” in its deeper meaning, is speaking about the Torah.

We sing Eishes Chayil before Kiddush on Friday evening, because of Shabbos and the great part the woman has preparing for it. The song is alphabetical, praising the Eishes Chayil (“Ideal Woman”) with lines beginning with all 22 letters of the Hebrew alphabet! (Yalkut)
