Discovering the Book of Ruth (Spring 2021)

Tuesday, April 27, 2021 thru Tuesday, May 18, 2021
7:00 PM to 8:30 PM
See session list below for specific session times and locations.
Topics: Text Courses
Educator: Rabbi Ruth Adar

This brief but fascinating text touches so many bases in our understanding of the Biblical world: daily life, family, clan and national identity, and the roles and limitations of women. It also serves as a foundation for expanding on the story in later ancient and rabbinic era literature. Finally, it informs our own modern ideas of what constitutes Jewish identity. Our richly illustrated class will delve into each of the four chapters of this brilliantly concise yet expressive text, both revealing the world of Ruth and linking its timeless meaning to our world.
