Description

In Jewish tradition there are five megillot (scrolls) that are read on five different holidays. All of them unrolled using a single roller, instead of two traditionally attached at each side of the scroll.

The Book of Ruth is read on Shavuot, the Festival of Weeks, which occurs seven weeks after the beginning of Passover, in late May or early June.
