Questioning faith in the parsha

Overview: No’ach (Genesis 6:9-11:32)

Parashah Overview

  • God decides to cause a flood that will destroy the world, sparing only Noah’s family and the animals that Noah gathers together on the ark. (6:9-8:22)
  • Life starts over again after the Flood. The Noahide Commandments are listed, and God uses a rainbow to make a symbol of the first covenant. (9:1-17)
  • People start to build a city and the Tower of Babel. God scatters the people and gives them different languages to speak. (11:1-9)
  • The ten generations from Noah to Abram are listed. (11:10-29:2)
