Choosing Judaism at Temple B’nai Jeshurun

The paradigm for choosing Judaism is found in the Book of Ruth. Ruth replies to her mother-in-law, Naomi, in words that define the spiritual journey:

Do not urge me to leave you or to return from following you. For where you
go I will go, and where you lodge I will lodge. Your people shall be my
people, and your God my God.
Ruth 1:16.
