The Song of Songs of Kindness
The Book of Ruth

The Book of Ruth inspired this Tzedakah Box (alms), symbolically shaped as a grain of barley and decorated with spikes of wheat.

The Book of Ruth is abundant with gestures and acts of loving-kindness. Boaz bids Ruth to harvest wheat in his field. He then requests that she will reap wheat solely in his field. Ruth returns to her mother-in-law and recounts where she gleaned for barley. “The man’s name for whom I have wrought today is Boaz.” (Ruth 2:19) The Midrash teaches, in the name of Rabbi Yehoshua, that “More than what the land owner does for the poor, the poor does for the land owner.” Hence Ruth said: “The name of the man who I wrought for” and not “which has wrought for me.”
