Commemorated on December 13

The Righteous Judith’s story is told in the book of Judith. She was a widow in the time of King Nebuchadnezzar.

While under siege from the Assyrians, and on the brink of starvation, the Jews of Bethulia considered surrendering. Judith, a widow, refused to surrender and sought out the General of the Assyrians, entrancing him with her beauty. While distracting him, she cut off his head, thus leaving the Assyrians with no leader. This allowed the Jews to fight back and drive away the Assyrian army.
