This stunningly beautiful Scripture Scroll of Ruth is designed to portray the parchment of an original Megillat Ruth, with spectacular art reproduced in vivid color accompanying the text that presents scenes from the biblical story contained in the scroll. It presents Hebrew and English text side-by-side, which tells the story of the Moabite woman who decided to cast her lot with both her Jewish mother-in-law Naomi and the Jewish people. As a result she was blessed by Boaz, her kinsman redeemer.
It was Ruth who uttered these immortal words of faith in God: “Wherever you go, I shall go. Wherever you live, I shall live. Your people shall be my people, and your God my God. Where you die I will die” (Ruth 1:16–17).
The ornate case stands 16” tall, and 4 1⁄4” in diameter.
