As the world powers sat with Iran in Baghdad Wednesday afternoon to discuss Tehran's nuclear program, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu sat in the courtyard of his official residence in Jerusalem and discussed the Book of Ruth with 16 rabbis, biblical scholars, archeologists and Hebrew language experts.

"The Bible is always relevant, whether in dealing with the problems and challenges of the day, or the problems and challenges of the period,"  Netanyahu said at the start of the study group, re-establishing a tradition David Ben-Gurion established when he was prime minister, and Menachem Begin continued when he served in that office. The study group,  established in honor of Sara Netanyahu's late father Shmuel Ben-Artzi, a renowned Bible educator, will be held periodically at the Prime Minister's residence.
