Who were Shifra and Puah?
I’ll give three answers:
1) Yocheved and Miriam.
2) Yocheved and Elisheva.
3) Two Egyptian women.
I wrote about this for my shul newsletter this week.
Daniel, excellent. We only mentioned 1) and 3).
I just asked my husband – he said 2) was a minor commentator’s opinion, and 1) won out.
Nice pop of color for your review…
Thanks for including a link to my post; I have only just realized.
I wrote this right before I wrote the abuse post, so it wasn’t up as long as usual before I had a new post. Friday was crazy. Writing a review of an already too busy week was easily the first thing to drop.
