Torah Message:

Saved From the Flood

“A window you will make for the Ark…” (6:16)

The Mishna says the word in Hebrew for “ark” — teva — can also mean “a word.” The word for “window” — tzohar — can also mean “to shine.”

In other words, you can read this verse as follows: “Make your word shine!”

Each one of us has the power and responsibility to illuminate our words, to make them words of positive force, of prayer, of encouragement, and of Torah. When we do this we raise the world around us above the deluge of physicality and selfishness that looms.

Even one word of prayer or Torah can save us from the “flood.”
