Hillel at UCLA

Dinner 6:00pm & Lecture 7:30pm – $40.00

Ruth is a stranger in more ways than one. Who is this unknown woman who is destined to become a 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 out?  

World-renowned Torah scholar and winner of the National Jewish Book Award (for The Beginning of Desire: Reflections on Genesis) Dr. Avivah Zornberg will return to Hillel at UCLA and present her thought-provoking talk on another fascinating topic from the Torah.

Avivah’s previous books:  The Beginning of Desire: Reflections on Genesis (list $20) and The Particulars of Rapture: Reflections on Exodus in soft cover (list $22) The Murmuring Deep: Reflections on the Biblical Unconscious in paperback (list $20).

Her books will be on sale at our book event. 

This program is made possible through a generous gift by Lisa and Alan Stern in memory of their mother Renee Salovesh.


The Dortort Center is located at Hillel at UCLA.
