Does The Story of Rut Have Examples of Nosei v’Ol Im Chaveiro?

In שׁוֹרָשִׁים (Shorashim– ‘roots’ for nursery) and שְׁתִּילִים (Shteelim– ‘saplings’ for kindergarten), we are well into our theme, נוֹשֵׂא בְעֹל עִם חֲבֵרוֹ (Nosei v’ol im chaveiro– Help a friend carry their burden, or, their heavy thing). This week we have been reading the story of Rut and trying to find examples of Nosei v’Ol Im Chaveiro.

Here are three ideas that children shared:

  • When the family moves to a new place because of famine, the characters were helping each other with moving which can be hard, by staying together.
  • When Rut stayed with her mother-in-law after her husband died, a hard thing that happened to both of them, they were helping each other with their feelings and take care of each other.
  • When Rut goes to glean in the field to get food for herself and her Mother-in-law, Rut is helping with hunger (a hard thing).

Here are some photos of the children acting out parts of the story of Rut:

Harvesting Wheat!
Rut follows behind the harvesters, gleaning any wheat that they drop.
Rut gleaning wheat, again!
When Boaz, the owner of the field notices Rut gleaning in the field, he asks her to stay at his field and offers her water. Rut bows to Boaz for being so kind to her.
