Where we speak about Women, Jewish Identity & Leadership in Business
Episode #25 Why are Women the guardians of the Jewish People's Identity and  Redemption 
Myriam Ackermann-Sommer, Student in Rabbinical School, a Teacher and a PHD Student 
In this Pre-Passover episode, Myriam talks about women's leadership in Egypt, which is what we are celebrating on Passover. She describes their courage in standing up against the tyranny of Pharaoh by seducing their husbands to have more children. They wanted to ensure the continuity of the Jewish People, even if Pharaoh had decided to kill all the Jewish baby boys. She reminds us of the Prophetess Miriam who was the one who convinced her father to conceive baby Moses who later became the leader who took the Jewish People out of Egypt.
Listen to the full episode to see how Myriam Ackerman brings different examples of how women saved the Jewish people on many occasions - from having babies in Egypt to being the first one to believe that they would go out of Egypt and refusing to give their gold to serve the idols and you will rediscover a dimension of the feminine leadership of the Women in the history of the Jewish People.
