Ruth: An Immigration Story

This text sheet uses excerpts from the Book of Ruth to begin a conversation about U.S. immigration policy. It is designed to segue into “The Sin of Sodom,” a text study that appears in the revised and expanded Mikdash handbook (p. 30-31).

The second page of this resource contains a prayer for immigrant children and families, in English, by Rabbi Sharon Cohen Anisfeld, as well as the names of the six immigrant children who have died in the custody of U.S. immigration enforcement officials in the past year.
