Ruth: Two Love Stories
Sandra E. Rapoport Megillat Ruth is a small but dramatic canonical book. It is also unique in the Bible—whereas most of the Torah is narrative, a whopping two-thirds of Megillat Ruth's 85 verses are dialogue, and most of that is between or involving women. It tells the timeless story of one family fleeing a famine; of death and return to one's ancestral home; of women who start out as strangers and evolve into a strong and loving unit; of one woman's exceptional loyalty, and of one man's strength and love for her. We will examine this story through text and Midrash, and we will ask and answer many questions: How does Ruth, a Moabite "outsider," turn her wary and hostile Israelite mother-in-law into an ally? Why must Ruth marry a kinsman of her dead husband? How does Ruth evolve into an Israelite "insider?" What can justify Ruth's nighttime seduction of Boaz? Why does the Torah tap a Moabite woman to be the great-grandmother of King David and ancestress of the Messiah? Come and learn why Ruth's story is a beloved and exciting sacred Jewish text.

The Greatest Jewish Thinker You’ve Never Heard Of
Paul Steiner Join doctoral candidate Paul Steiner in a fascinating introduction to the work of Dr. Lenn Goodman. While Goodman draws upon Jewish texts, he is a firm advocate for logic—not religious authority—being our guide to knowledge. The lecture will explore his ideas about justice, truth, the implications of Creation, the nature of God, and finally, how logic suggests that God likely exists. Paul Steiner received his BA from the University of Winnipeg (Canada), and an MA in Jewish Thought from the Jewish Theological Seminary. He has been a teaching assistant in philosophy at JTS, where he is also a doctoral candidate in Jewish Thought. (more)REGISTER
