Description

This week’s parsha tells us about an epic description: the flood God that brings to destroy the world. But we never stop to ask...why did God choose a flood, of all things? Interestingly, only last week, in the story of the creation of the world, we talked about all these same elements – deep waters, winds of God, and more.

The intriguing repetitions may change the entire way we think about the story of the flood.
