For centuries, countless readers from all backgrounds and cultures have been inspired by the uplifting tale of the biblical Ruth, a story that nurtures hope and instills belief in a brilliant future. Now, in a revolutionary new reading of the Book of Ruth, Rabbi Moshe Miller brings us a commentary that provides an entirely new perspective on this timeless tale. In Rising Moon, the reader will discover that beneath the seemingly simple surface of this fable-like story – the story of a princess of Moab, who leaves her homeland after suffering terrible personal losses and is then reduced to grinding poverty in a foreign land, only to discover love and become the mother of the royal house of her adopted country – the Talmud and Midrash trace a tangled web of primal issues: the expulsion of Adam and Eve from the Garden of Eden; the ruinous jealousy of Cain; the painful break between Abraham and Lot over the limitations of hesed; the coercive nature of the giving of the Torah; and the mystery that is the mitzvah of yibum. And within this drama, the one fiber that binds together all the divergent characters and issues is love. Love forms the backdrop of this book of the Bible, presented here as a “play” in four acts, and it is the key to this story, which culminates in the unique love of Ruth and Boaz, the ancestors of the once and future king, David, whose very name, Rabbi Miller observes, means love! In Rising Moon the reader is promised a powerful, eye-opening interpretation of the Ruth story.
