Risk Taking in the Book of Ruth

Posted by Tovah Leah Nachmani on May 18, 2017
Topics: Ruth, Shavuot, Ruth

In this class that was recorded LIVE at Pardes, Tovah Leah Nachmani explores how the unexpected tensions in the Book of Ruth are played out through the secondary characters as they interact with Ruth and Naomi. Midrashic and mystical sources will raise practical questions and dilemmas about how these characters evoke us to evaluate the advantages and flaws of human compassion and judgment.
