Who is Ruth, this unknown woman who is destined to become mother of royalty? How does she find her way into a foreign culture and religious tradition? Biblical scholar Dr. Avivah Zornberg explores these questions. Dr. Zornberg holds a BA and PhD in English Literature from Cambridge University. She taught English literature at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, and now teaches Torah in Jerusalem at and at the London School of Jewish Studies.
