I Am a Stranger: Becoming Ruth

with Dr. Avivah Zornberg

Wednesday, May 20

6:30 PM


The tale of Ruth is taught as the archetypal story of love, loyalty and reward. But who was this Moabite woman who married a Jewish man, moved to Bethlehem with her mother-in-law and became the ancestor of royalty?

How did Ruth find her way into a foreign, unwelcoming culture and religious tradition? What did destiny have to do with her journey — and how does destiny come about?

Join us for another fascinating evening with the rock star of Torah study as she explores Ruth as a stranger.
