Question: What is Arvut (Mutual Guarantee) from the standpoint of a woman? Is it support and raising the importance of the goal?
Answer: Since the world has begun to discover the general crisis, there is no difference between men and woman as far as attaining the upper world, in the work between them. Women also sit in workshops and participate in them just like the men, and they experience the same feelings no less than the men. So, I don’t think that there is any difference between the men and women.
It seems to me that all of that is gradually disappearing. All the previous differences will become more internal. This means that within each one of us there are two lines, a man and a woman, and we need to join them again into one common line, in that same Adam (human) that was created, not as a man or a woman, but as it included both from the start, it is understood that both the nature of the man and the woman operates in him.
When Rabash began to write his articles, he gave them to a group of women, and the women read and discussed them. This means that he was concerned about how they would perceive them.
In the time of Rabash, we had to enlarge the room made especially for the women where they attended and listened to our classes three times. I am convinced that nowadays, there is no problem with the presence of women in their support and their active and equal participation with the men. I simply don’t see any special differences, and with the years, we will see less and less. But in the places where the men connect and hug, there is no place for women, but this is because these disturbances exist in us.
And if the roundtables are arranged side-by-side, even in the same room, or in two different rooms, it is only so that we won’t be distracted on the corporeal level, so as not to disturb us. And so, there is no difference. I personally don’t feel inside that there is a difference. And besides that, I hear women’s responses in the workshops that we organize on Sundays and see how much they understand the essence and how much they grasp everything that happens, no less then the men. So, there is no need to pay attention at this.
We need to differentiate between women and men only in one thing. Entering the women’s organization and working in it is only for females. With all other things, there shouldn’t be a separation.
