Kehilat Moreshet Avraham, 22 Adam Street, Jerusalem + ZOOM
Opened to The Public

The Book of Ruth addresses modernity in all its complexity. Benjamin Segal, past president of the Schechter Institute of Jewish Studies and author of previous biblical commentaries, unlocks the book’s literary structure and lasting import, while drawing on classical and modern sources. He writes:

“This new commentary understands the Book of Ruth to be a fantasy of perfection: a brief moment of grace, of welcoming strangers, of feminine leadership, of flexible laws and of humans achieving God’s agenda. The moment is gone but that horizon remains.”

The program is open to the public in accordance with Israel Ministry of Health guidelines, separate seating for green passports and others.

Rabbi Segal’s comments alone will be in English.
