Moon Mother

Moon Mother

The moon is like woman.
The moon shines with light from the Creation of the World.
So too, the woman shines
With light from the creation of a world–
Her child….

  1. Very touching. Where did you hear this? I read in R’ Shimshon Pincus’s sefer Nefesh Chaya that women are like the moon because just like the moon reflects the light of the sun, women reflect light from those around them. This is why it’s so important that we read the right things, look at proper things and relate with good people, because we absorb the light around us and reflect it to our families.
