Ruth: Gleaning the Fallen Sparks illuminates the biblical story about a Moabite widow of a Bethlehemite, who became a righteous convert inspired by her mother-in-law Naomi. Her name was Ruth and her story has the ability to teach us so much about the laws concerning relationships, levirate marriage, true kindness, redemption and gleaning from the fields both literally and spiritually. She married her older kinsman, Boaz, in order to preserve her deceased husband’s legacy and became the mother of Oved, the grandfather of King David. But there is more to Ruth’s story waiting to be discovered below the surface. In these fascinating and utterly enthralling pages, the story of Ruth is dissected in a way that it never has been before. Through intensive analysis and chassidic insight, Rebbetzin Chana Bracha Siegelbaum illuminates the book of Ruth and enlivens it in a manner that’s accessible to all readers. Ruth, the mother of Royalty, is the perfect role-model and inspiration for women who aspire to walk in her path of righteousness and make a difference in the world. Through this thorough analysis, Rebbetzin Siegelbaum shows us Ruth, the woman and the righteous convert, in a totally new way that is truly inspirational.
