If such writings do not contain bigoted or evil teachings, no harm will follow. In a very real sense, this is faute de mieux: these duties in essence fall on every Jew as such, and they have devolved upon the rabbi because laymen simply do not have the time. What drives this is the dissonance between women's lives in society at large where, at least in principle, all options are open to them, and their role in traditional Jewish life which is limited and constrained by laws developed by (male) rabbis.

Women typically wish to marry within the tribe and raise Jewish children, while men often expressed hostility toward Jewish women and religion generally. He pushes the matter further: “Any spite rather than the spite of a woman!” (25:13).

Of course, the Qumran communities themselves were extensions of the Jewish people, what used to be called "sectarian." In defining the relationships of peoples whose fundamental differences are rooted in matters of ethnicity or religion, "tolerance" is one thing, "equality" quite another. It should be noted that much of Genesis consists of the common myths of the region (and many other regions), such as the creation story, the fall of man, the flood, and so on.

Judaism states that a life without marrying is a less holy, less complete, and a less Jewish life. These groups were called cults by the western media... the "Hare Krishna Cult", the "Tibetan Buddhist Cult"... when in fact they are centuries' old religious traditions practiced by millions of people in their countries of origin. In 1947 the United Nations agreed to create the State of Israel in what was then Palestine. Sometimes added to the biblical concepts will be the alien notion of a dualism between a pure spiritual world and a corrupt material world, which will complicate ascetic traditions through the ages.

And if a woman have an issue of her blood many days out of the time of her separation, or if it run beyond the time of her separation; all the days of the issue of her uncleanness shall be as the days of her separation: she shall be unclean. Just don't stand in the way of other women when it doesn't make them happy. The Sabbath—they called it their ‘bride’— was their freedom, their sanctuary in time.(24) And the meal begins—at this moment of moments in the Jewish week—with a poem of love from the husband to his wife: But thou excellest them all (Prov. 31.1031).
