Megilas Rus and the Power of Chesed By Rabbi Yehuda Y. Steinberg (136 Pages)Publisher: Targum Press, 2010
On the surface, the Story of Rus is a subtle one. No remarkable acts of heroism and astounding miracles. Just the simple account of a lone Moabite convert struggling to find sustenance during the seasonal wheat harvest. Take a closer look though and the picture changes. The magnificent tale of the establishment of the Jewish people s royal lineage unfolds. The self-sacrifice and awe-inspiring kindness that led to it is this book s message.
Renowned talmid chacham, Rabbi Yehuda Steinberg takes us deep into the underlying lessons of Megilas Rus. He reveals its central lessons so that we come away not only with a much clearer picture of what things were like over two thousand years ago. He reveals to us, two thousand years later, it s so very much needed guidance each individual and each generation can apply in our own lives.
This year, make Shavuos the meaningful Yom Tov it was meant to be!
