Naomi’s Radical Plan: “Truth or Dare” : Megillat Rut in Depth: Chapter 3, Lesson 1

As a new chapter opens, the narrative undergoes a paradigm shift. Henceforth, it is no longer Ruth the righteous convert driving the process, but rather her aristocratic mother-in-law, Naomi. With the ripening of a new reality, and in pursuit of her daughter-in-law's permanent security and stability, she introduces a daring plan that is anything but conventional! Rather than minimizing or glossing over the shocking nature of the course of action being outlined, this class embraces and tackles the challenge head on.
