“Wisdom is not a product of schooling but of the lifelong attempt to acquire it.”
            ~ Albert Einstein

Lifelong learning is a core value of Judaism. We study to learn “how” and we study to learn “why.”

INSIGHTS INTO THE STORY OF RUTH: ANCIENT AND MODERN THEMES AND INSPIRATIONS
“Do not urge me to leave you, to turn back and not fol-low you. For wherever you go, I will go; wherever you lodge, I will lodge; your people shall be my people, and your God my God.” (Ruth, 1:16)
In June, those beautiful words will be recited on Shavuot morning as we recite the story of Naomi and the loyalty and love shown to her by her Moabite daughter-in-law, Ruth. The story tells how Ruth refuses to abandon her mother-in-law and how she eventually meets and mar-ries Boaz. Megillat Ruth has inspired both classical and modern commentators, artists and poets.
We will focus on the mother/daughter relationship in the book and other female perspectives. Then we will focus on the meaning of the book in the context of Shavuot.
