Show Notes

It's almost Shavuot! Alex and Aryeh sat down with our friend and colleague Rabbi Dr. Stu Halpern to discuss some contemporary reflections on Megillat Rut, the book of Ruth.

In a discussion that is bookended by Broadway references, Stu introduces ideas about the Jewish approach to immigrants, refugees, converts, antisemitism, biblical symmetry, and more.
