Shiphrah and Puah (Exodus 1) | Games


This story of Shiphrah and Puah’s simple deception and deep consequences may at first seem a funny subject for the frivolity of games, but with so many symbols to play on, the idea of super heroes, the lavishness of the pharaoh, the deception and protection it brought are all wonderful images to tie into playful activities.

Today’s heroes are Shiphrah and Puah because they shows us the gift of real Super heroes

Essential Teachers notes:
It’s important to note the background of midwifery. Shiphrah and Puah probably got married as teenagers and wanted to have children. In a heartbreaking practice, their lack of ability to conceive or carry would mean they become midwifes. These two , though failures in the eyes of society, are the very definition of a super hero: A powerful enemy, the lives of innocents at stake, and an evil plan to undo. There would be no Moses basket without these women.
