Item Description:

To understand the surprising twists and turns of the Book of Ruth, we must first look at the times in which they took place. The era of the Judges was a time when “everyone did what was right in his eyes,” a period of terrible chaos. But while human weakness often reigned, sometimes human greatness triumphed. Rabbi Wein makes clear how the struggle between self-discipline, lawlessness, and everything in between gave rise to the quintessential Jewish leader, King David.
