And a Woman will Encircle a Male

In Yirmiyahu 31:21, the second half of the verse is as follows:

כי ברא ה' חדשה בארץ, נקבה תסובב גבר
For Hashem has created something new in the land, a woman encircles a man. 

This, to me, seems  to be a remez for the nesirah, when Nukva comes around to the front side of Z"A.


  1. Thanks. It seems obvious, but only after you said it. It fits in the context, in Yirmiyahu.

  2. Evidently not my chidush, search the text of the 1st perek of the GR"A on Sifra diTzniuta. One of the readers pointed that out to me after I posted this.
