Session 13: "Shelo Asani Goy / Aved / Isha" - Part 1 - שלא עשני גוי \ עבד \ אשה

A session of questions: How are we to understand this set of three (four, when we speak of the woman’s beracha, “She’asani Kir’tzono”) berachos? Why are they expressed in terms of the negative? How are we to be grateful for what we are not? And if everybody and everything in Creation has a unique and necessary purpose, why would we suggest that some are “better” than others? Stay tuned for next week as we continue with a session of answers! שלא עשני גוי - שלא עשני עבד - שלא עשני אשה - שעשני כרצונו
