The Legacy of the Three Ruths and Beit Ruth: Tikkun olam in Action


The Brunch to Benefit Beit Ruth


Sunday, February 3 at 10:30 am

The Windsor of Gainesville

Barbara Oberlander, Ph.D., will speak about Jewish heroes, Ruth Gruber and Ruth Bader Ginsburg, and Beit Ruth Executive Director, Danielle Burenstein, will speak about biblical Ruth, connecting her story to the mission of        Beit Ruth. 

The Beit Ruth Educational and Therapeutic village, located in Afula, about one hour north of Tel Aviv, takes in and cares for at-risk girls and young women who can no longer live at home. Beit Ruth is their opportunity to break the cruel cycle of abuse, poverty and distress that has been an inseparable part of their lives. 

Help US, help THEM achieve their dreams of a better future!
