The Honest Ruth – with Reb Irwin Keller

The Book of Ruth is a tale of outsiders who find their way in; women on the margins; unconventional family; obstacles to legacy; and the delicacy of becoming Jewish. It is an intimate story with dynastic ramifications. And it is, from a bunch of vantage points, very queer.

Join Rabbi Irwin Keller for 4 sessions of Zoom study on the Book of Ruth, leading us right up to Shavuot, when we traditionally read this book as a community. Expect text study, midrash, linguistic nerdiness, feminist manifesti, a queer eye, and even some Yiddish poetry. You will need to have on hand the Book of Ruth in print or on line (here’s a link), and please have read through it before the first session. (Don’t worry, it’s 4 short chapters.)

Dates: Tuesdays – April 26, May 3, May 10, May 17
Time: 7-9 pm
