Beruriah lived during the second-century and was the wife of the Jewish sage Rabbi Meir. What makes her unique among all the women married to sages, however, is that she was a scholar in her own right. Rabbi Joseph Telushkin writes of Beruriah in his book Jewish Literacy: "Over fifteen hundred rabbis are mentioned in the Talmud, all men. There is one woman...whose learning equaled theirs: Beruriah" (pg. 147).
The image above comes from a website that creates comic strips from passages of the Talmud. It illustrates an exchange between Beruriah and Rabbi Meir that is recorded in Brakhot 10a. (You can see a larger version of the image here.) To learn more about this exchange and about Beruriah visit: Who Was Beruriah?
