Welcome To Bais Mordechai

The hope of this site is to be educational and inspirational. I see the Torah as an instruction manual given to us by a benevolent Father in heaven to help us navigate our lives, with stories and examples for us to learn from.
BIBLE = Book of Instruction By which to Live on Earth
FROG = Forever Rely On G-d
Frogs only jump forward not backward. So too must we continue to move forward in our quest for spirituality and contentment.

Chp. 6 verse 16 - Chp. 8 verse 10: Hashem tells Noach that he will destroy the earth and continue mankind through him. He was to enter the ark together with his family. Also a male and female of all animals, birds, and everything that creeps on the earth, in addition to food. Chp. 7, Noach is also commanded to bring seven pairs of all kosher animals and birds. The rain began on the 17th of the second month, and continues for 40 days and nights. The waters lasted for 150 days. Chp. 8, the ark rested on the mountains of Ararat in the 7th month on the 17th day of the month. After almost 3 months he sent a raven to see whether the dry land had reappeared. It just flew back and forth. Then he sent a dove but it did not find any dry land and it returned. Seven days later he sent it out again.

Chp. 8 verse 10 - Chp. 9 verse 22: Noach sends the dove out 7 days later and she returns with an olive leaf in its beak indicating that the waters had receded. The third time he sends the dove it does not return. G-d tells Noach to leave the ark with his family and all the animals. He builds an alter and brings offerings to Hashem who promises him that he will not repeat what he had done to the earth again and that things will return back to normal. Chp. 9, Hashem blesses Noach and his sons that they should replenish the earth. He assures them that the dread of them would be upon all living things. He permits them to eat meat, but not blood. He shows Noach the rainbow as a sign that he would not longer destroy all of mankind again. Noach gets drunk in his tent, and Ham sees the nakedness of his father and tells his two brothers.

Chp. 9 verse 23 - Chp. 11 verse 32: Shem and Japheth cover their father's nakedness. When he wakes and realizes what his youngest son had done he curses his grandson Canaan. He then blesses Shem and Japheth. Chp. 10, the Torah traces the genealogy of Japheth, Ham, and then Shem. Chp. 11, the Torah continues with the story of the tower of Babel. This would lead to the dispersion of mankind upon the face of the whole earth and creation of different nations and languages. There were ten generations from Noach till Avrom. He lived in Uhr Kasdim and it was there that he realized the oneness of Hashem. In Kasdim, Nimrod threw him into the fiery furnace because of his refusal to serve idols, and his decision to serve the only true G-d.
