Women of the Hebrew Bible, Part 2: Jochebed

Jochebed, (c) 2010, Sheila Orysiek

Jochebed

Determined to save the life of her infant son from Pharaoh’s edict to kill all the male infants among the Israelites, she wove a basket and sadly – but courageously – pushed it into the Nile River.  Without her action our story may never have been.

One of a series of seven women of the Hebrew Bible illustrating the moment in their lives when they were at pivotal point, contributed significantly to subsequent events and/or set a precedent in the history of our people.  — Sheila Orysiek
