בָּכוֹ תִבְכֶּה בַּלַּיְלָה וְדִמְעָתָהּ עַל לֶחֱיָהּ אֵין לָהּ מְנַחֵם מִכָּל אֹהֲבֶיהָ כָּל רֵעֶיהָ בָּגְדוּ בָהּ הָיוּ לָהּ לְאֹיְבִים:

Hayom Yom:

With three instruments of service - love of G‑d, love of Torah and love of Israel - must young students of Torah approach their Avoda in the vineyard of the L-rd of Hosts,to bring the hearts of their brothers closer to observing practical mitzvot and to designating regular time for Torah study. They must do this without paying any attention to the affliction of factions. The absolute truth is that the heart of Israel is a wellspring, a source of living waters, and there is a "covenant" with effort and publicity - that they shall never be fruitless.


All that is sacred to the nation of the G‑d of Avraham and is fundamental to the house of Israel - in establishing and rearing an upright generation, kashrut of food, the sublime pure holiness of Shabbat, was entrusted by awesome and revered G‑d - for preservation and development - to the woman of Israel.

The woman who fulfills her obligation and destiny in the life of the family, in conducting the home, and in seeing that the education1 be according to Torah, this woman is the subject of the verse, "The wisdom of women constructed her home."
