Event Series Book of Ruth Text Study

Book of Ruth Text Study

Temple Emanu-El 2100 Highland Ave, Birmingham, AL, United States

“Megillat Ruth (the Scroll of Ruth) is about kindness and audacity. Through its depiction of Ruth, her actions and influence, the book illustrates just how one can cultivate such virtues so as to bring about personal and even national transformation. The concluding genealogy weaves this transformation into the larger tapestry of Israel’s epic narrative by tying Ruth to David, Israel’s most illustrious king.” - Reformjudaism.org Join us for this enriching Shavuot text study with Cantor Wittner on Erev Shavuot.
