What obligations do we have to those who choose to become Jews? The Biblical character Ruth was a convert to Judaism, and she is the focus of a biblical book read on the upcoming holiday of Shavuot. Should we treat converts as 100% Jewish? How careful must we be about their feelings? And how do we deal with the stranger in our midst? Also, we look at the lost art of how to rebuke or correct or try to change someone's behavior without creating an enemy. It's all in the words, dear friends, it's all in the words.
Wishing everyone a joyous and meaningful Shavuot holiday celebrating God's giving of the Torah to the Jewish people and morality and ethics to the entire world. May the Torah we study buff and polish our character, to be a light unto the nations and a pride to the Almighty.
