Rubies, a midrash on Proverbs 31 (Eshet Chayil) by Alicia Jo Rabins

A beautiful lullabye or Shabbat song

“Girls in Trouble” is a cycle of indie-folk/art-pop songs about women in Torah created by musician and writer Alicia Jo Rabins. This song, Rubies, is adapted from the Book of Proverbs – a related song called Eshet Chayil is commonly sung at Shabbat tables – and in this video Alicia Jo explains how she wrote this midrash on the text which makes a gorgeous lullabye. Indie folk from one of the most important Jewish songwriters at work today.
