Throughout Jewish History there were great women who personified the aishes chayil. They were each tzadikot (pious illustrious women) of their own right and of outstanding stature. What made them great? What is it in each one of them that we so emulate and revere? What challenges have they faced and overcome? What gave them the enormous strength needed?
