Project Ruth ~ Resources for Shavuot 5784/2024

To help enhance your participation and learning for Shavuot,

check out Jofa’s Megillat Ruth & Shavuot Resources, including:

Excellent recordings of both Megillat Ruth and the trope,

accessible both online and via downloadable Apple app and Android app.

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 offers tools to make it easy to lead a Megillat Ruth reading in your community.

The Megillat Ruth App enables you to learn how to leyn (chant) right from your web browser, smartphone, or iPad.

Now you can download the app, for your iPhone/iPad or Android device, and you’re on your way.

The app’s features include:

  • The entire Megillat Ruth text with translation
  • On-Demand Audio: With a simple click or touch of any verse, the corresponding Hebrew with proper trope 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. 

With many thanks to Rabbanit Bracha Jaffe, who made a recording that is deliberate and precise,

to serve as a learning tool for anyone interested in chanting Ruth for the first time. 

Additional Shavuot resources include:

Shavuot articles from our Jofa Journal, by diverse and respected voices,

and Jofa’s Megillat Ruth Study and Discussion Toolkit,

which can be used for individual or group study.

We hope that these leyning and learning resources help to enhance your chag

with meaningful participation and fresh insights.

Chag Shavuot Sameach!
