God’s Hesed and Our Own: Reading the Book of Ruth
Hosted By: Hadar
The book of Ruth, traditionally read on Shavuot in Ashkenazic communities, is one of the richest and profoundest books in the Hebrew Bible. What can its major themes — hesed (loving kindness), first and foremost — teach us about our relationships with God, others, and ourselves? Join Rabbi Shai Held in 4 consecutive nightly sessions in which we’ll explore the book from literary and theological standpoints, considering Rabbinic midrash, medieval commentaries, and modern scholarly and feminist approaches.
