Woman of Valor, or 'Aishet Chayil' in Hebrew, is a hymn to the perfect wife. The artist has written the phrase 30 times. In Hebrew, each letter has a numeric value. The number 18 represents 'Chay' - life, and 12 represents the age, according to Jewish tradition, that a girl becomes a woman, ready to take on the challenge of being an 'Aishet Chayil.'

This stunning piece by, Ellen Miller Braun, combines the Book of Ruth with two very moving prayers: Eitz Chaim Hee - It is a Tree of Life and the Blessing of the Daughters given by some parents on Friday night, combined with the Blessing of the Eve of Yom Kippur (the Day of Atonement). These blessings are a beautiful gift to share with every woman, whatever her age. May you be so Blessed.

Every woman is like a unique flower, having a distinctive color and individual scent. Together, all the flowers create one beautiful bouquet blossoming from the Tree of Life.

A young girl - turning twelve - is a fresh bloom joining the garden bouquet of womanhood. According to Jewish tradition, twelve is when a girl reaches the age of accountability for the Torah and HaShem's Mitzvot (commandments). She begins her journey as a young woman. She begins walking the path of continuity, linking her and her family's past with that of her present and future and to all of Am Yisrael (the Jewish People).
