In this week’s Torah Portion, life on this planet is destroyed. I believe the Torah is showing us that everything in the material world is vulnerable. Since mankind has left the Garden of Eden, life has been a cycle of destruction and rebirth. We depend on Hashem’s promise of techias Hamaisim (Resurrection of the Dead). Just as “Noah” is the second Torah Portion, so “Techias Hamaisim” is the second blessing in Shemoneh Esreh: “And You [Hashem] are faithful to revive the dead!”
Working Towards Moshiach
We live in chaotic times. No secret there. But with Torah as our guide, we can rise above the tumult, just as Noah’s Ark rose above the floodwaters of a drowning world.
Organized according to the weekly pershah, Working Towards Moshiach is a spiritual boost in the arm against troubled times. Roy Neuberger’s inspiring mix of Torah insights, stories and personal reflections provides the beacon of light and encouragement we all need to see beyond today’s headlines.
