Women in the Bible – Ruth

So who was this woman named Ruth? Let’s look at some facts: Background Ruth was a native of Moab, east of the Jordan River (Ruth 1:4-5) She was the wife of Mahlon (4:10) and The daughter-in-law of Naomi and Elimelech (1:4) The Journey of Ruth Before giving birth to any children, her husband died (1:4-13) The love she felt for her mother-in-law Naomi was so great that she left her land to travel with Naomi to Bethlehem(1:16-18).

This morning as I picked up my siddur ( סדור‎ plural סדורים, (siddurim) which is a prayer book, containing a set order of daily prayers.) I felt led to share a bit with you. The word siddur comes from the Hebrew root word סד״ר‎ meaning “order”. So basically, it’s an order of prayers. There are prayers for the morning, afternoon and evening. Not that we have to do it…but it does seem to ‘set’ your day in order. For instance, this morning I read the following verses (and most of the verses in the siddur are simply taken from the Psalms) and I was translated...
