Rabbi Wexler takes us on a fictional journey into the Biblical story of five brave and determined women who advanced Judaism and ultimately the world.

The Daughters Victorious tells the amazing Biblical story of five sisters whom, over 3,000 years ago, fought for their inheritance and dignity. They sacrificed their individual yearnings to advance the causes of property rights and religious education for women at the time when such privileges and rights were non-existent.
