Parsha Talk Noach 5782 – with Rabbis Eliot Malomet, Barry Chesler and Jeremy Kalmanofsky

It is parashat Noach [Genesis 6:9-11:32] on Parashah Talk, which always brings back a flood of memories. As we turn over the story of Noah we do not get much beyond his character and the question of how we should evaluate him. Is he the one-eyed man who sees far in the land of the blind but perhaps not even half as well as the one with two eyes, or is even greater than Avraham, who did not have to contend, at least in the Torah, with evil on the magnitude of Noah’s generation? We also talk about the genealogies of the 3 sons of Noah, and the more limited one from Shem to Avram, as he is known when we first meet him. Please let us know how you look at Noah, or anything else, at [email protected]. Shabbat Shalom!
