Jewish Women on the Map - Ruth Brin's Birthplace


Ruth Brin's Birthplace Saint Paul, MN
United States

Ruth F. Brin was a literary pioneer famous for her authentic Jewish poetry, prayer services, scholarly articles, children's books, librettos, a memoir, and most recently, at the age of 86, her first novel.

She was born in 1921 in Saint Paul, Minnesota, and lived in Minneapolis until her death, at the age of 88, on Wednesday, September 30th. However, her poetry and teachings moved beyond the Twin Cities, filling the pages of Reconstructionist, Reform and Conservative prayer books used in synagogues around the country. She passed away on September 30, 2009 at the age of 88.
