Ruth, Boaz, and the Model of Marriage
In this class, we will attempt to offer a counter-narrative to the popular model of marriage: Adam and Eve. In fact, Ruth and Boaz offer a different model of the wedding (encoded in various wedding rituals and texts) that open up alternative understandings. Our goal will be to see the story—and the wedding ritual—in a new light. Recorded at the Rabbinic Yeshiva Intensive 2018.
