And the king loved Esther above all the women, and she obtained grace and favour in his sight more than all the virgins; so that he set the royal crown upon her head, and made her queen instead of Vashti.
Queen Esther’s rise to authority is a true rags-to-riches story of the lowly commoner whose grace enchanted the king so much so that he fell deeply in love with her and made her his queen. Later, when Esther learns of the threat to the Jewish nation, the queen uses her newfound elevated position to help save her people from the hands of their enemies. Thousands of years later, we remember Queen Esther and her bravery every year on the Jewish holiday of Purim. But with the new Queen Esther Line of Regal Jewelry, you can feel like a queen each and every day of the year! In honor of International Women‘s Day, save 20% on the entire collection. Treat yourself like the royalty you know you are.
Like Esther before them, there are many modern-day Jewish women leaving a strong mark on our society. Admittedly, the following list only scratches the surface of Jewish women making a difference, but here is a sampling of those who have made headlines for channeling their inner Queen Esther.
The Jewish Prayer Shawl, in Hebrew Tallit, is customarily wrapped around oneself during prayer. Donning a Tallit is the fulfilment of the biblical commandment of tying fringes onto the corners of a four-cornered garment. This beautiful Tallit manufactured in Israel shares the same blue and white colors as the Israeli flag!
