John Edwards

Cate Upham, Née Edwards: Ayshet Chayil

In Jewish tradition, we think of an Ayshet Chayil, or woman of valor, as a wife:

A woman of valor who can find?


She is more precious than rubies.

The heart of her husband trusts in her,


And because of her he lacks nothing.

I want to make a pitch today to expand our definition to include daughters in tribute to the heroism of Cate Upham, 30, daughter of disgraced politician John Edwards. (She married in 2011.)

Daughter of Jephtah
