Ruth: A Play in Four Acts with Dr. Sharon Keller

The Book of Ruth tells its story with charm and pathos, and our tradition teaches us that “This scroll [Ruth] tells us nothing either of purity or impurity, of the forbidden or the permitted. For what purpose was it written? To teach how great is the reward of those who do deeds of loving-kindness” (Ruth Rabba 2:14). This quote looks to Ruth as we tend to see her, the generous, sweet, devoted convert who will do anything for her widowed mother-in-law. But that is just one level of the story; one aspect of this most beloved text. Join us as we look at Ruth in a new light, Ruth the woman and Ruth the text.
