    There is an error in the 5th slide of the powerpoint. It says she married at 14, and after 30 years of marriage she was widowed at 54. It should say she was widowed at 44.

      Absolutely! I’m glad you enjoyed the lecture. Next week we’re planning to discuss Sara bas Tovim, another amazing woman.

    I enjoyed watching the video on Gluckel of Hamlen. It is nice to know that she was a successful business woman. The fact that she wrote 7 memoirs during the 1600’s was an amazing accomplishment. Her memoirs were filled with lessons and advice’s for her descendants. We are very fortunate to be able to apply her advices in our lives. Thank you for posting this video.
