Entering our Mother’s House: The Book of Ruth as a Model for Welcoming the Other with Dr. Amy Kalmanofsky
Part of our series “The ‘Other’ in Jewish Text and Tradition”

The book of Ruth tells the story of a Moabite woman who marries an Israelite man and ensures the future of the house of Israel. Join Dr. Amy Kalmanofsky to examine how this remarkable book understands the formation of identity and how it offers a model of inclusion that remains relevant and essential today.
Dr. Amy Kalmanofsky is the dean of List College and the Kekst Graduate School and Blanche and Romie Shapiro Professor of Bible.
