#2, Reuven, worries about the loss of Jewish values. Reuven is from Petach Tikvah, some citizens of which have just recently demonstrated new "Jewish Values", which are nothing but racist. IMHO the settlers and the whole of the Israeli right-wing wouldn't know a Jewish value from a hole in the wall. The lack of empathy, of compassion, the blindness of the current right-wing government to the brutal violence of the settlers to Palestinian shepherds, etc. are as far you can conceive from Jewish values. Ruth was a "ger"; we are shown in the Book of Ruth that loyalty is met by loyalty. We shouldn't need the Torah to instruct us what distain and scorn lead to. Ethics, morals, compassion and empathy are supposed to be Jewish values; if they are not practiced by Jews..then who is a Jew?
