If you were to describe what it means to be a man in one word, what would it be? "חַיִל or chayil"
Why that word? "The man who rises up to who he was designed to be engages his community and his environment. He doesn't give up or turn back when there is resistance, but he bravely revises how he will use the resources at his disposal to improve the world."
Who is the manliest person you know and why? "Ken E. He is my adopted father, farmed until he turned 90, and is more alive with chayil than most humans I know. "
Word: חַיִל or chayil
