B’reishit – בְּרֵאשִׁית (Genesis 1:1−6:8)
This Week’s Torah Portion: B’reishit – בְּרֵאשִׁית (Genesis 1:1−6:8)
“And God saw that this was good” (Genesis 1)
This phrase repeats in the story of Creation at the end of every act of creation.
Our Torah is letting us know that the world is good, and humanity is very good.
It is sometimes hard to believe; however, we need to remind ourselves that our tradition believes in the goodness of our world and the goodness of humanity. It’s a Torah of life that loves life and believes in the good nature of humanity.
