Last month, Rabbi Ari Sollish presented the first in a series on Jewish Women in the Bible for Hadassah Greater Atlanta/Metulla. During the engaging and lively discussion on the story of Ruth, Rabbi Sollish highlighted the strengths and weaknesses of the major characters: Elimelech, Naomi, Ruth, Boaz, Orpah, and Ploni. He also showed the connection between the story of Ruth and the qualities of leadership and decision-making between what is easy and what is right.
Rabbi Sollish is a noted author, teacher, founder and director of the Intown Jewish Academy. He also teaches Jewish studies at Emory University’s continuing education program.
The next in the series is set for Aug. 12, when Rabbi Sollish will discuss Deborah.
