Shabbos Noach

DVAR TORAH

 

"THESE   ARE   THE   GENERATIONS   OF   NOACH.   NOACH   WAS   A

COMPLETELY RIGHTEOUS MAN IN HIS GENERATION." (Braishis 6:9)

     Rashi cites two Talmudic opinions (Sanhedrin 108a) regarding the words "in his generation." Some see this as praise of Noach others see this as a negative statement. Noach was considered a Tzadik because all of the other inhabitants of the world at that time were wicked. Others see the words "in his generation" in a negative light.  Only in his   generation was he considered righteous, but if he were living in Avraham's generation, he would not have been considered a great Tzadik.

The Chasam Sofer commented on this, that both opinions are correct. However, the reality would be that if Noach were in Avraham's generation, he would have been influenced positively by Avraham, and Noach would have become much greater than he actually was.    

     This is a fundamental lesson on the importance of being in the presence of elevated people. We are all influenced by our surroundings. When you are close to people who act in an elevated manner, you are automatically influenced in positive ways.

     Anyone with children has to keep this lesson in mind. When selecting an environment   for a child, we must remember that our choice will affect the child forever. He will be affected by his peers, by his teachers and by his surroundings.  The optimal time to ask questions is before we expose our children. Inquiring after a child has been exposed and possibly affected by things that are antithetical to our ideology is a little late. Our children are our greatest gift. We must always have their best interest in mind.

                                                                                                                                                                     Shabbat Shalom!
