I Am a Stranger: Becoming Ruth
with Dr. Avivah Zornberg
Wednesday, May 20
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.
