Women of Valor
Performed by the Los Angeles Jewish Symphony, conducted by Maestra Noreen Green.
Released by Albany records, this hour-long oratorio is a celebration of women from the Old Testament, inspired by a Midrash (biblical commentary) on Proverbs, where each line of the biblical text from Proverbs 31 represents a strong, resourceful woman. Texts for “Women of Valor” are drawn both from the Bible and from modern poems and prose, highlighting the stories of Sarah, Leah, Rachel, Jocheved, Miriam, Hannah, Jael, Michal, Ruth, and Esther.
