Storytelling by Eden Nameri, with discussion to follow

image2-2-cNaomi, bereft of her husband and sons, returns to Judah during the barley harvest, with her Moabite daughter-in-law, Ruth. Is Ruth’s devotion to Naomi merely daughterly? This ancient tale is one of regeneration – both personal and familial.

Eden NameriEden Nameri tells stories from the Bible that incorporate a mix of traditional and original midrash, along with plenty of personal perspective. She can often be heard telling stories at Congregation Shir Libeynu, at 1001 Friday Nights and at the Toronto Storytelling Festival. Eden studied storytelling in New York with the late Diane Wolkstein.
