male & female traits-

ותצא דינה בת לאה 

The Sefer (אפריון (ר' שלמה גאנצפריד writes :
 The reason the Torah points out that דינה was בת לאה, is to teach us that the reason דינה was a יצאנית, (an outgoing person) which is usually a male trait because she was  בת לאה who Davened that the male she was carrying should change gender and become a female. Therefore she still had in her some male tendencies e.g. outgoing personality.

The Sefer
(יערי ודבשי (הרב נסים דיין writes, The reason Yosef was מסלסל בשערו, (curled his hair) was because the תרגום המיוחס ליונתן בן עוזיאל writes,
" ואתחלפו עובריא והוה יתיב יוסף במעהא דרחל ודינה במעהא דלאה"  Yosef  started off originally as a female in Rochel's womb and  changed into a male when Dina was switched into a female.
Therefore Yosef still had female traits e.g. curling his hair.

  1. Harvard Law Professor Alan M. Dershowitz said:

    “…Zecharia, like so many of his contemporaries,
    worked for a time in a sweatshop.

    The shop he worked in, making pocketbooks, was located in a building just east of Washington Square [in Manhattan], site of the ill-fated Triangle Shirtwaist Company.

    On the Saturday of the great fire in [March 25,] 1911 [CE] that engulfed the building and killed 145 workers, Reb Zecharia was at home. It was the Jewish Sabbath.

    He learned two lessons from this:
    he vowed that his children would never become factory workers and he vowed that they would never work on the Sabbath.”


    Zecharia Derschowitz moved from Galicia to the USA in 1888 CE.
    He was the great-grandfather of Harvard Law Professor Alan M. Dershowitz.

    grew up Orthodox but later became secular.

    He said this about Orthodox Judaism,
    many years after he quit it:

    “I cannot leave my progeny any legacy comparable to the Orthodox commitment to, and intimate knowledge of, Jewish tradition and practice that my predecessors left me.

    Though I have not abandoned my Jewishness – far from it – I have also not carried on the tradition of daily religious observance and total immersion in the sources of the tradition.

    Sometimes I regret not having done so.”
