This narrative inclusion, so different from the male, Jewish perspective in Potok’s earlier novels, is congruent with the protagonist’s feminist perspective: it is collaborative and communal learning. The writing of fiction holds no real values in the strictly orthodox community of which Davita becomes a part. This fact is coupled with the fact that women themselves also seem to lack significant roles in religious reading and ritual outside of the home, where their Sabbath role is enormously important, as they light the candles, recite the prayers, and becomes the “Sabbath Queens.” Through the creation of a female protagonist, Potok discloses the weaknesses of exclusion, and in Davita’s Harp, he makes a convincing case for rethinking and restructuring the place of women within the orthodox Jewish tradition.

In the end, you can see that society has made Mildred self-centered and unfeeling.
