A national religious Israeli woman from Zfat told me the following story last week:
There are quite a few Taliban women living in the southern part of Zfat. There, where rents are still affordable but many people are still on the dole.
The women like to sit outside in front of their houses. Almost every afternoon, if the weather is nice, those women sit together for a chat.
They try to be so terribly holy but when it comes to their household and children, they are suddenly not that ambitious anymore.
Once a certain well - respected Rabbi came to Zfat. He wanted to give a Shiur to religious women and all those women, including the Taliban, were anxiously waiting him. While they were waiting in a big hall, the Rabbi passed a house on his way to the hall. He heard children screaming and asked where their mother was. The children answered that their mother had gone to the Shiur of a famous Rabbi who was supposed to come.
The entire time until this particular woman came home, the Rabbi took care of the kids. The women were waiting and waiting for the Rabbi and when he didn't show up, they decided to go home.
Also the woman came home and found the Rabbi watching her kids. He told her that taking care of children is more important than coming to his Shiur.
Some of the religious woman who want to be so holy are not that holy when it comes to Be'in Adam le'Chavero or even their own children. Pushing oneself a little less right into the front in order to be the first in line before the Kadosh Baruch Hu couldn't hurt and the children of those women would be much happier.
