This chapter describes the sacred obligations of the Jewish woman. The mishnah of kinin deals with the problem of the bird sacrifices that a woman who has just given birth or other individuals who have experienced impurity are obligated to bring after they recover. This is connected with the issue of the beginning of a woman's ritually unclean period (menstruation). The chapter then considers the culture of modesty. The battle against immodest dress is at the very centre of the culture of modesty; the modesty of Jewish women saved the Jews from exile. Finally, the chapter focuses on the commandments of kashrut, explaining the necessity for Jewish women to learn the rules regarding kosher food.

Keywords:   Jewish women, bird sacrifices, impurity, menstruation, modesty, kashrut, kosher food
