This week’s parsha (portion of Torah) is Parshat Noach, the story of Noah and the ark.
I found this video on the ADD Rabbi blog. It is a commercial for a financial company, but it’s hilarious. Noach falls out of a tree, gets kicked by a donkey, etc., but still has to gather all the animals. It really captures the eternal struggle, the eternal comedy (the good kind), of the Jew. We’re bound by the yoke of heaven and have to do the mitzvos we’re commanded no matter how funny it is, or how incredibly hard.
