Noach – Noach

This week’s Torah Reading is called Noach. Shabbos is also Rosh Chodesh – The New Month of Mar Cheshvan – The bitter (Mar) month of Cheshvan for we no longer have any holidays and sweet honey as a must on our menu.

In the Torah Reading we find 150 days mentioned twice. The first time refers to the time, days, the rain continued. The second time the 150 days are mentioned refers to the number of days it took for the waters to subside and allow the ark to come to rest on the mountains of Ararat.

There may be a thought we can learn. The first 150 days refer to the first to letters of the Al-mighty’s name, the Yud and then the Hay. The numerical value of yud is 10 and hay is 5 for a total of 15. There are 10 various levels in the sefiros, worlds. Thus the total is, 10×15, 150. The rain removed the impurity that the world had acquired since creation. The second 150 days may refer to the spiritual input that was given to the world to return it back to its positive original state.

We need to be aware that our actions, though they may seem at times to be minor, play a role in the impact they have on the world. Our positive actions create positive energy and our negative actions create the opposite. We need to focus on filling our lives with positive energy and thus the world will be filled with positive light that will lead to the final Redemption and the building of the 3rd Holy Temple.
