Our own Barbara Rushkoff, interviewed at YNet News:
“I love to tell the story of Ruth, because I think she is a righteous, cool woman who was not only the first convert but also the first feminist. I love that a non-Jewish woman redeemed land for the Jews, how she wanted to become a full fledged Jew and how she embraced the whole “a woman’s gotta do what a woman’s gotta do” philosphy – how cool is that?”
