Beyond Givers and Takers

Every year we are moved by the uplifting tale of the Book of Ruth. But it is more than just a fable-like story. This course will reveal the underlying narrative constructed by the rabbis of the Talmud and Midrash that touches on some of the deepest aspects of our relationships. Through the story of Ruth, Naomi and Boaz, you will learn about cruelty, kindness, independence and love, and how the book paves the way for the birth of a Jewish kingdom. You will never see Ruth in the same way again…
