This week’s Jewish terminology word is: niddah

Shalom Children of G-d!

Welcome back to Marie Speaks G-d’s Grace Bible Study.

This week’s Jewish terminology word is: niddah pronounced (KNEE-dah). This is a Hebrew word regarding the Jewish Laws relating to menstruation and martial relations. Also See taharat ha-mishpachah.

Oh this is a juicy topic of the week isn’t it? I do pray for others who have never heard of the niddah term before keep a couple of things in mind.

Marriage is a Convenant between G-D, Man and Woman. G-D, is the head and foundation of the Orthodox Jewish Faith. The divorce rate within the American Orthodox Jewish Faith is an amazing… 10% this is considered high. An article date October of 2022 state: About 10% of US Jews identify as Orthodox, and their divorce rate is only about 10%. While divorce is not considered a sin, it is socially frowned upon. Some would even call it a tragedy, particularly because in Judaism the home is the center of life.

Where as the divorce rate among Americans an article dated January 3, 2023 states: The United States Census Bureau report suggests that marriage and divorce rates dropped from 2009 to 2019. Usually, second or third marriages in the United States have a higher divorce rate: 60% of second marriages and about 73% of third marriages end in divorce. Couples going through their first divorce are around the age of 30.

The negative statics as for as drug use, jail or prison, family violence, teen pregnancy, STDs, rape, and murder to name a few…. is far below the American National Average, are practically non existent.

Marital relations and intimacy is not just physical or emotional in the Orthodox Jewish Marriage… is seen and aimed always to be Spiritual as well as pleasurable… a sacred union between a soul mate given by Almighty G-D for ones life time.. while here on earth. The potential for life is a sacred and observed as such. All well, as the blood being thought of as part of a persons body and or soul.

An Orthodox Jew truly does view not only their body as a true vessel and temple made in the image of Our Creator… Blessed be He, but others body too. To miss treat anyone human in any way shape or form especially sexually is considered and treat as a great shame. An Orthodox Jew does not live only for today, this minute, or get get a use and abuse out of another human, but we look at the eternal.

For example…What is the life here after going to be…..if I hurt, use, betray, injury anyone now. We are taught to value life, because Life is directly from our Father in Heaven.

All that basically being said….please please judge a product by its fruit…. I do believe others might be able to look at the success rate of Orthodox Jewish Life and see that main system or whats consider “normal” would not be anything good… if it was the America statistics would be just as good as the Orthodox Jewish Community stats.


Today we are going to go over our Jewish terminology for the week.

This weeks word is: niddah (KNEE-dah)

Or as I like to say…… my body my choice… don’t touch me…respect my space….I don’t know you… I am a child of the Living G-D Amen and Amen.

As far as a further definition:

taharat ha-mishpachah- Pronounced (tah-hah-RAHT). A Hebrew word literally mean, “family purity”. The Jewish Laws concerning sexual relationships, especially during a woman’s menstrual period. While the Torah forbids intercourse only during a woman’s menstrual period., levels of observance of taharat ha-mishpachah diverge. Some strictly traditional Jewish men do not kiss, hug, or even touch their wife during the forbidden days and for seven days after, until she has visited the mikveh. Some Orthodox makes avoid even casual physical contact (like a handshake) any time with a women who is not their wife. Also called the laws of niddah.

Below are some articles and videos I found that can possibly explain niddah and taharat ha-mishpachah much better than I am able.

Welcome the following is a brief review of this Bible Study. 1. This BLOG post will have the resources and sources links for the Season 5 Bible Studies . 2. All Books used and Readings from during Live Bible Study can be found on Our Website: Marie Speaks GOD’s Grace. Live in the Season 5 portion of the website. 3. After Live Bible Studies have completed: I will upload to Rumble, and post link in this BLOG. How we conduct Bible Studies here: We believe G-D has called each of us to search matters out. (It is the glory of God to conceal a matter, And the glory of a king to plumb a matter. Like the heavens in their height, like the earth in its depth, Is the mind of kings—unfathomable.. Proverbs 25:2 -3) This is one reason why here at Marie Speaks G-D’s Grace Bible Study, we review several historical references and resources, of which we provide links and or screen shots for others to study at their leisure. We have been directed by G-D Wonderful and Almighty, to go Book by Book, Verse by Verse; sharing HIS Torah and Tanakh. We believe as directed by G-D Our Heavenly Father, learning and growing in Torah and Tanakh leads to understanding and wisdom; this shall only be achieved in reading, studying, and sharing HIS Word for ourselves; not relying on man. Learning, growing, and studying with OUR L-D is to be done with others that are like minded, but more so during our personal time. The BLOGs are written to assist those just beginning to study the BIBLE as a starting point. The Live or recorded Bible Studies are to cover and release opportunities and guidance, but ultimately is ones own personal responsibility to rule, govern, and be purposeful in their relationship with G-D. Proverbs 22: 4 thru 6 The effect of humility is fear of the LORD, Wealth, honor, and life. Thorns and snares are in the path of the crooked; He who values his life will keep far from them. Train a lad in the way he ought to go; He will not swerve from it even in old age. Ezekiel 18:20thru 22 The person who sins, he alone shall die. A child shall not share the burden of a parent’s guilt, nor shall a parent share the burden of a child’s guilt; the righteousness of the righteous shall be accounted to him alone, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be accounted to him alone. Moreover, if the wicked one repents of all the sins that he committed and keeps all My laws and does what is just and right, he shall live; he shall not die. None of the transgressions he committed shall be remembered against him; because of the righteousness he has practiced, he shall live. Is it my desire that a wicked person shall die?—says the L-d G-D. It is rather that he shall turn back from his ways and live. May HaShem, Blessed be He continue to Bless us all and may we all be forever written in the Book of Life. O'Amein and O'Amein Let US Begin!!!!
