In that volume, he once again deals with one of the main issues of Argentine Jewish literature of the early twentieth century: how to conceive intercultural relations between Jews and non-Jews in pursuit of the construction of a national new belonging. This article aims to analyze the conceptions about the wandering of Jewish migrants, intercultural relations and the possibility of elaborating a new belonging in Argentina in “The White Shadow” and “Ruth and Naomi”, two stories of Ruth and Naomi. This analysis will demonstrate, on the one hand, that these conceptions are expressed in both stories through a symbolic reelaboration of figures linked to the Jewish cultural heritage (such as Schlemiel, Ruth and Esther) and of a figure reappropriated from the anti-Jewish Christian discourse (Ashavero). On the other hand, this analysis will show the presence of a set of postulates about intercultural relations in both stories. According to these postulates, not only the end of anti-Semitism, but also a new and flexible relationship with Jewish traditions, would be indispensable conditions for the construction of a new belonging for Jewish migrants. En 1934 el escritor Enrique Espinoza (seudónimo de Samuel Glusberg) publicó su segundo libro de cuentos, Ruth y Noemí. En ese volumen, abarcaba una vez más una de las principales problemáticas de la literatura judeoargentina de principios de siglo XX: cómo concebir las relaciones  interculturales entre judíos y no judíos en pos de la construcción de una nueva pertenencia nacional. Este artículo se propone analizar específicamente las concepciones que se traman en dos cuentos de Ruth y Noemí (“La sombra blanca” y “Ruth y Noemí”) sobre la errancia de los migrantes judíos, las relaciones interculturales y la posibilidad de elaboración de una nueva pertenencia en la Argentina. Dicho análisis permitirá, por una parte, dar cuenta del modo en que dichas concepciones se expresan en ambos cuentos a través de una reelaboración simbólica de figuras vinculadas al acervo cultural judío (tales como el schlemiel, Rut y Ester) y de una figura reapropiada desde el discurso antijudío cristiano como es el caso de Ashavero. Y, por otra parte, demostrar cómo del entramado dialógico de ambos cuentos surge una serie de postulados sobre las relaciones interculturales según la cual serían condiciones ineludibles para la construcción de una nueva pertenencia nacional para los migrantes judíos no solo el fin del antisemitismo, sino también una relación novedosa y flexible con las tradiciones judías.
