The Temple Institute on Noah

Torah from the Old City of Jerusalem.

"Noach (Noah) was a righteous man he was perfect in his generations... "

Much ink has been spilled over the centuries trying to determine what Torah really intended by that qualifying phrase, "in his generations."

An expression of praise?


Perhaps it meant just what it said, no more, no less:

Noach was a righteous giant, the right man at the right time, true to his own potential, worthy of G-d's affection, the rescuer of all flesh, and the father of all who have followed.
