Human Nature

"Nowadays, we can't really be sure whether a hurricane is just another storm, or if, somehow, the climate itself is changing – putting into question our very way of life. In the Torah, the key point is not that the world was flooded, but that, eventually, the waters receded." Rabbi Ammiel Hirsch discusses hope and the triumph of good over evil in the face of the flood that wiped out humanity.
