Questions & Answers on the Book of Ruth By Rabbi Moshe Pinchas Weisblum (222 Pages)Publisher: Jonathan David, 2005
Every spring, on the Jewish holiday of Shavuot, these famous words are read from the biblical Book of Ruth, a story of self-transformation that speaks to readers today as powerfully as it did when written during the time of Samuel the Prophet and King David.
In Ruth Talk, the second volume in his "Talk" series, Rabbi Moshe Pinchas Weisblum brings the history, characters, drama, and message of the Book of Ruth to life through a series of insightful questions and answers. Using the same technique that proved so successful in his Table Talk: Biblical Questions & Answers, the author leads us through each chapter and verse of the Book of Ruth and gives us a deeper understanding of the story and the traditions associated with it. Most important, he teaches us how the lessons embodied in this meaningful work--kindness, humility, choice, fate, and tikkun olam--can inspire us to improve our interpersonal relationships and repair the world in which we live.
