The Torah reveals the most important work a person can do in their lives.
In the Torah portion of Shemot, we read about the Jewish midwives. One of their names was Shifra and the other one was Puah.
Yet we know that Shifra and Puah were actually Yocheved and Miram – the mother and sister or Moses.
These are women who were also leaders of the Jewish people, why did the Torah give them names that represent seemingly menial tasks?
