comment “There is a son born to Naomi”? But it's a grandson — what's up with that?
Thanks @DoubleAA :) The general idea comes from Rav Matis Weinberg but I have added my own take on it. I think you'll enjoy these - thelivingtree.org/indexRuth.htm

revised How do we know that we have free will?
Since this pasuk is said only to the Jews I amended the answer to reflect that. The answer is only applicable to Jews and does not reflect a source for free will for non-Jews

comment Hand movements when lighting shabbat candles
I think the first part actually answers a different question (why do women cover their eyes after lighting). I'm not familiar with the chabad source (ner shabbat ch. 13). but perhaps there is more information there as to why that motion and why 3 times etc.
