Dating violence perpetration and victimization among U. adolescents: prevalence, patterns, and associations with health complaints and substance use. Prevalence and correlates of dating violence in a national sample of adolescents. It is a text that names what it sees rather than sugarcoats.For example, here we read about Boaz, a wealthy kinsman of Ruth’s destitute, widowed mother-in-law, Naomi.We can also infer that nothing of a sexual nature happens between them because of what we know about Boaz from the start: He considers everyone created in the image of God.This basic Jewish value, in turn, can lead us to Judaism’s view of the potential sacredness of all relationships, including sexual ones.
Next to the box are scraps of paper and some pencils.Several such values can be gleaned straight from the Book of Ruth customarily read during the holiday of Shavuot, which begins this year on the evening of June 11.Best known for its embrace of Ruth as a convert to Judaism and its emphasis on loving-kindness, the Book of Ruth also includes interactions that have a potentially sexual cast to them.Although the Book of Ruth is an ancient text told in only four chapters, it can be a source of Jewish values for teens entering the world of dating today.These include the importance of giving actions their right names; for instance, naming any form of coerced or non-consensual sexual activity as abuse.Of course, the story of Naomi, Ruth and Boaz has much to teach everyone about healthy relationships.
