And I Am a Stranger: Becoming Ruth, with Dr. Avivah Zornberg

And I Am a Stranger: Becoming Ruth, with Dr. Avivah Zornberg

Sunday, April 29, 2018, 7:00 – 8:30 p.m.
MNJCC, 750 Spadina Avenue, Toronto

World-Renowned Torah scholar and Professor of English literature, Dr. Avivah Zornberg, joins us from Israel for a richly textured exploration of biblical narratives, modern midrash and the biblical unconscious.

In preparation for Shavuot, when we traditionally read the book of Ruth, we’ll journey into her enigmatic character. Ruth is a stranger in more senses than one. Who is this unknown woman who is destined to become mother of royalty? What is the process by which she finds her way into a foreign and unwelcoming culture and religious tradition? How does destiny come about?
