Story

The story of Ruth begins with her being a Moabitess princess. She learns about Judaism along with her sister. They both have an opportunity to go to Israel. Ruth and her sister go, but halfway through her sister decides to head back. Ruth continues onwards and reaches Israel, where she meets Boaz. She works for him, when she finds a love for Boaz. Naomi suggests to get Boaz's attention, and soon Boaz falls for her. They legally get married and give birth to Oved, who becomes the grandfather of David.

Ruth has a book named after her in the Tanakh.
