What's in a name? (And a kugel!)
So many wonderful connections to your name. I do wish that a Baby Ruth bar was really that nutritious, I suppose the peanuts do provide protein! I have never eaten kugel let alone made it, I may need to give it a try. Thanks Ruth.
What a beautiful post about a beautiful name!
My favourite holiday has always been Purim, because I was named after Queen Esther 😀. As soon as I was old enough, I begged my family to let me throw Purim parties and read the entire story aloud every year.
fondly remembering visiting the Notorious RBG exhibit at the Skirball Center with you and Jeff, and our granddaughter Ruth, Ruth! love from your friend, one of the MANY Susan's
Hi there - I’m lying in bed in Tel Aviv reading your article. As always, it was wonderful. I loved all the interesting things connected to your name and the kugel recipes too. I’m here for 3 weeks visiting my daughter and sweet grand baby who turned one on Friday. Hope to see you real soon. 💕
My mom’s oldest sister went by Ruth but since her legal first name was Yoneo, I think she took Ruth on her own as her American name
What a wonderful article about your name, influences… and a recipe even I could make! ❤️
You did it again! Here's to all the Ruth's. And kugles.
My grandmother's sister's name was Ruth.
Not long ago I wrote this piece about Ichabod. It came about after I had read about Ruth and Naomi and went on a Wikipedia trail which ended up with Ichabod. You can read about him here and where he ended up :-))
Another wonderful read and just loved you started off with the book of Ruth!.
Great piece Ruth!
Love this, Ruth! It’s so interesting to hear about your feelings about your name, and I love the company you keep! (Ginsberg, Gordon, Babe and more!) Wonderful about your copy of The Book of Ruth. I have a sister-in-law named Ruth and my Mom (who adored her) always called her ‘Baby Ruth’ ☺️ Thanks for this lovely post. (I was named after a hat shop in Québéc and my life changed in 1974 when Dolly’s song 🎶 came out!
Strangers have been singing to me when they first meet me for almost 50 years! 🤣
