30 Tisrei – 15 October 2023
וַיֹּ֤אמֶר ד’לְנֹ֔חַ בֹּֽא־אַתָּ֥ה וְכׇל־בֵּיתְךָ֖ אֶל־הַתֵּבָ֑ה כִּֽי־אֹתְךָ֥ רָאִ֛יתִי צַדִּ֥יק לְפָנַ֖י בַּדּ֥וֹר הַזֶּֽה׃
Then G-d said to Noah, “Go into the ark, with all your household, for you alone have I found righteous before Me in this generation.
Allegorically, “entering the ark” means that we should immerse ourselves in the study of the Torah and in prayer, in order to protect ourselves from the “flood” of wordly distractions that threaten to “drown” us in materialism.
In these days, I would want to add to the Lubavitscher Rebbe’s statements that we must delve into the Torah and the history of the Jewish people in order to not drown in the stream of media falsehoods. And we must pray for Jerusalem’s, Israel’s, and the Jewish people’s peace. To which the Chief Rabbinate of Israel has appealed to all Jews and others interested in the Jewish people. Keep praying: Psalms 121–130, 142–91. At half past one and half past eight o’clock in the evening in Israel.
