Please join us at Adas Israel on Tuesday, May 7 at 7:30PM for our final MakomDC Scholar Talk of the year with special guest, Dr. Avivah Zornberg. Dr. Zornberg’s talk, “I am a Stranger: Becoming Ruth,” will focus on Ruth being a stranger in more senses than one. Who is this unknown woman who is destined to become mother of royalty? What is the process by which she finds her way into a foreign and unwelcoming culture and religious tradition? How does destiny come about? Dr. Avivah Zornberg teaches Torah throughout the Jewish world, at synagogues, universities, and psychoanalytic institutes, and is the author of five critically acclaimed books, including the recently published, Moses: A Human Life. Generously sponsored by the Annie Bass Yellen Fund.
