The Five Megillot: The Book of Ruth

Hosted By: My Jewish Learning

Meet the woman who is at once an outsider and the source of the messianic line (as King David’s ancestor). Through a close reading of the Book of Ruth, traditionally recited on Shavuot, we’ll look at the qualities of loyalty and faith that earn Ruth her important place in Jewish history.

This class is part of My Jewish Learning’s series with Rabbi Sara Brandes on the Megillot – the biblical scrolls – that are chanted on Purim, Passover, Shavuot, Tisha B’Av, and Sukkot.
