Radio TLV1, Tel Aviv: Israel in Translation "Ruth The Moabite: Judaism's Most Famous Convert"

from by Michael Levy



International broadcast on Radio TLV1, Tel Aviv on 30th July 2014 from the series "Israel in Translation" - "Ruth The Moabite: Judaism's Most Famous Convert":

In this broadcast from 2014, my arrangements for 10-string Biblical Kinnor of the traditional klezmer melodies "Araber Tanz" (track 13) and "Odessa Bulgar" (track 10)" were featured, from my debut album, "King David's Lyre; Echoes of Ancient Israel":

Quoting from the radio station website about this show:

"‘Ruth’ is a little street in Tel Aviv, nested near Dizengoff Square and off the other little streets named after Biblical heroines such as ‘Esther HaMalka.’ Both Ruth and Esther were immigrants, and so it’s appropriate that the Ministry of Absorbtion for new immigrants should be located here.

While Esther was a covert Jew, Ruth was the most famous convert to Judaism in history. As a Moabite, she was explicitly forbidden to marry an Israelite, but nevertheless she became the great-grandmother of King David.
Jews read the Book of Ruth during the holiday of Shavuot. Today we hear Linda Zisquit’s lively translation of the first chapter, which for at least two years was placed on banners over Chen Boulevard in Tel Aviv between Passover and Shavuot."
