Project Ruth

Providing resources to expand opportunities for women during Shavout.


Thanks to a very generous gift from the Koschitzky family in honor of Sarah Edery Delorde on the occasion of the Bat Mitzvah of her great granddaughter, Karen Aouizerat, JOFA can make it really easy for you to lead a Megillat Ruth reading in your community.


The Megillat Ruth App lets you learn how to chant right from your web browser, smart phone, or iPad. Now you can download the app, for your iPhone/iPad or Android device, and you’re on your way.


The Megillat Ruth app boasts the following features:

  • The entire text of Megillat Ruth with translation
  • On Demand Audio: With a simple click or touch of any verse, the corresponding Hebrew with proper trop is chanted by a woman, while the corresponding text is highlighted
  • Tikkun View: With a simple click or touch, you can choose whether you want to see the Hebrew as vowelized text or as it appears in the Megillah with crowns and without vowels 

Rabbanit Bracha Jaffe has made a recording that is deliberate and precise, in order to be a learning tool for anyone interested in chanting Ruth for the first time.
