Adult Education: “Leading, Following and Friendship in the Book of Ruth” – Class 1 of 2 – JOIN US!
May 9 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm
Enjoy a new learning opportunity in a 2-class daytime series just in time for Shavuot. “Leading, Following and Friendship in the Book of Ruth” taught by Rabbinic Intern Dr. Esther Jilovsky.
Traditionally read on Shavuot, the Book of Ruth is a short yet far from simple story of love and loss, family and friendship. Ruth, a Moabite woman, chooses to follow her mother-in-law Naomi’s religion after her Israelite husband’s death. Together we will read this powerful story of female friendship and life after loss, following Ruth’s journey from bereavement to rebirth, and contextualize her story in our tradition.
UPCOMING: Thursday, May 16. Please RSVP to Debbie Shayer at 818.348.0670 or firstname.lastname@example.org
