Is the compatibility of career and family only a twenty-first-century question? Glikl bas Juda Leib (1646–1724) was a wife, a mother of twelve, and a successful businesswoman. In her memoirs, she demonstrates that she took her role as mother just as seriously as her position as a respected tradesperson. Glikl describes her marriage, her thoughts about child-raising and Jewish piousness, and her career, which took her on perilous journeys.
