Lessons learned from my trip to Morocco — there is hope
Posted: November 08, 2017

Reflecting on the courage of his grandfather, the current Moroccan king, Mohammed VI, wrote in a 2015 speech: “Today, we need, more than ever, to ponder the lessons and relevance of this part of history in order to stand up more forcefully to the deadly aberrations of those who are hijacking our cultures, our faiths and our civilizations. We are living at a time and in a world in which the collective imagination of our societies is too often impaired, not to say poisoned, by regression and archaism. By capitalizing on the depth and resilience of the legacy left by my revered grandfather, His Majesty Mohammed V, we can, together, set out to recover the lost expanses of reason and mutual respect which have vanished from many parts of the world.”

Believing and not believing
Posted: October 18, 2017

The Torah tells us (chapter 7, v. 7) that Noach and his family went into the ark “because of the waters of the flood.” Rashi on this verse takes note of the superfluous words “because of the waters of the flood,” and says that Noach was one that had little faith in Hashem, and did not enter the ark until the waters of the flood forced him in. Rashi also refers to Noach as one who believed but really didn’t believe that the flood would come.
