More Shavuot Material!

I'm happy to share with you some additional Shavuot material, including an audio shiur on Megillat Rut, as well as a drashah that I wrote about Rut and Excellence that I gave in YIOP about five years ago.

Audio Shiur:
Selfishness and Selflessness in Megillat Rut
These two themes form an underlying motif throughout the Megillah. A close look both at the text and the Midrashim on the text reveal a critical message for us as we prepare for Shavuot.
