Visible Midrash about Ruth

We usually think of midrash as spoken stories about Torah. But Visual Midrash from the TALI Education Fund Collection reminds us that illustrations also tell stories. With our examination of the Book of Ruth at this year's Passover Village, The Visual Midrash website's collection of illustrations about Ruth provides a treasury of images to help our understanding of the story.

The above illustration, by Marc Chagall, shows Niomi saying goodbye to her two daughters-in-law.
