| Roundup: Parshat Noach in Science, Music, and Culture

Zev Stub    
Thursday, 11 October 10:32 AM
The story of Noach and the ark is one of the Torah's best-loved stories. Here are some of our favorite resources as you prepare for this week's parsha. 

Natan Slifkin, the "Zoo Rabbi" who founded the Biblical Natural History Museum in Beit Shemesh, has a classic essay where he explores the various rabbinic and academic approaches to the historical aspects of the flood. You can find that here

One of my favorite classic Israeli songs I learned as a kid was Moti Caspi's Noach. The Hebrew word "Hipopotam" always made me laugh. Find it here. 

Not that people like Bill Cosby anymore, but his short comedy sketch on Noah is still a well-loved classic. You can see it here

These Noah's Ark Birthday Party Ideas are over the top!

Since Parshat Noach is when humanity was given permission to eat meat, there has been a tradition in some places (mostly college campuses) to put meat in everything this week, from meat challah to meat salads and soups to meat brownies for dessert. If that's your custom, I'd be happy if you'd invite me... :)

Jacob Richman has a full Noach Page with divrei torah, children's resources, videos, and more. 

Here are divrei torah on Noach from YUTorah.

Enjoy!
