International Fellowship of Christians and Jews

Rachel: Our Matriarch of Compassion


In Jewish teaching, compassion is the highest of virtues. The ability to care for someone else, to see the world through another person’s eyes, is the most powerful and life-changing way we interact with those around us. Rachel, the third of Israel’s matriarchs, was known for her compassion and is often considered the mother of Israel. Learn about this extraordinary woman and her role in the story of Israel and why she has remained such a symbol of compassion for the ages in this complimentary issue of our Bible study series Limmud (“study” in Hebrew).
