Title : Dolce of Worms: Women Saints in Judaism [Dolce, along with her two daughters, was murdered during an antisemitic attack; her husband, Rabbi Eleazar, wrote both a prose (reproduced in the text with English translation) and verse memorial in which he praised her piety, her knowledge of Hebrew, her abilities at managing the household, her bravery in seeking help during the attack on their family, and her shrewd business skills that supported the family and allowed her husband to study the Torah; Dolce's saintliness consisted largely in her willingness to obey her husband and support him in his study of the divine word].
