"Eshet Chayil - History and Modern Inplications," with Linda Sacks

By tradition, a husband recites the final 22 verses of Proverbs, Eshet Chayil, to his wife at dinner on Friday night.  Often cited as old-fashioned and misogynistic, what do these Biblical words really mean? Where does this Shabbat tradition come from? Was there actually a real Woman of Valor? Was it a composite of the desirable wife? Do these words refer to something different? Can women learn to appreciate these sentiments?
