Praise Ruah, Spirit Who Gives Birth

Larry E. Schultz leads the Pullen Memorial Chancel Choir, Congregation, and Orchestra in "Praise Ruah, Spirit Who Gives Birth." Ruah, the Hebrew word for “Spirit,” comes at the beginning of the Genesis account of creation. “The earth was without form and void, and darkness was upon the face of the deep; and the Spirit (Ruah) was moving over the face of the waters” (Genesis 1:2). The Hebrew word for “Spirit” (Ruah) is feminine in form. Ruah moved over the waters to bring forth all life. The word Ruah also means “breath.” Ruah is the Breath of Life. Ruah breathes Her life into all, giving birth to the universe.
