In Jewish tradition, Ruth is the second of five short books which are called, collectively, the Megilloth or Five Scrolls. Each of these books has an annual setting in the Jewish calendar and are read in their entirety in the Synagogue on these special holidays. The Book of Ruth is associated with the festival of Shavuot, or Pentecost, and is read alongside the Torah reading from Exodus 19 and 20 which records the story of Moses on top of Sinai and the giving of the Ten Commandments. We are doing a study during the month of October. The curriculum can be downloaded below.
