Get ready for Shavuot with one of Bible’s most beautifully subversive books. What exactly is Ruth and Naomi’s complex plan about? Who were the historical Moabites and what is Ruth’s radical stance about them? When was Ruth written and could it have been written by a woman? Join Dr. Naomi Susan Schwartz Jacobs as she explores the story of her namesake.
