Not that I am aware of, the name Ruby on Rails is pretty explicit. Why would you want to? The power and flexibility of Rails is directly correlated to the fact that Ruby is so powerful and flexible.

If you want a nice rails-like framework in a different language, you can try Django which is based on Python, another outstanding language. There are some wanna-be rails frameworks in PHP(yuck!).

There's also Grails which uses Groovy instead of Ruby.
