4. Noah: Righteous Man or Simply Better Than?
Noah, the man with the boat, water, and animals. We all know the basic story. In this video, I focus on the balance between how we are affected by our surroundings, and how we also have to rise above our surroundings and give to others around us. There is one phrase at the beginning of the parsha (section of the Torah), and the contradictory commentaries that we have been given by our sages help us answer this question. Had Noah lived in a different time, would he have been even more righteous? Or is the Torah giving a backhand criticism and saying that had he lived in another generation, we wouldn’t even be talking about him? Watch to hear my conclusion :)
Have you had experiences like the ones described? Did you have to make difficult decisions and changes? Would love to hear of your experiences!
