This chapter discusses the work of crypto-Jewish woman which on the whole was composed of what is categorized as domestic work that provided the only Jewish-style framework for the women and their families. Jewish law imposed a great deal of work for the judaizing woman, divided according to legal or halachic categories. Observance of the Sabbath required extensive labor every week; the preparation necessary for Passover was probably the finest example of intensive domestic labor that was not only thorough but thoroughly exhausting.

Keywords:   crypto-Jewish, Jewish law, legal, halachic, Sabbath, Passover
