|Eishet Chayil: A True Search|
|Written by anonymous|
A man needs a special blessing to be able to ‘find’ and always keep in mind the qualities that make his wife an Eishet Chayil – a woman of valor. The Chidah (Chomat Anach) teaches that the Gematria – numerical value of the closing letters of the four words: “Eishet Chayil mi yimtza” is 441, which is also the Gematria of Emet – Truth. Only a man who is searching for truth will merit discovering the Chayil – the valor – of his wife.
This is not a romantic song that we sing without meaning, thought and preparation.
