The Sixties Radical Azriel


We are supposed to enter the ark so we can immerse ourselves in Torah. This where I learn and then it is my job to leave the ark and go share with the world the good news. This is what G-d commanded us Jews at Mount Sinai. Yet this truth goes all the way back to Noach.

I am being raised up to be sent out to be of service to HaShem. So we can bring the good news of salvation and redemption given to us by Yeshua the Jewish Messiah who is the L-rd of my life.

Exactly one year after the Flood began, the earth was dry enough to be habitable. But Noah was reluctant to leave the ark, for he and the animals had lived in peace and harmony within it. Noah knew that once the animals would leave the ark, they would revert to their naturally aggressive behavior.

 G‑d spoke to Noah, saying “Leave the ark!” Genesis 8:15-16

As we have seen, “entering the ark” is a metaphor for the need to immerse ourselves in Torah study and prayer. However, the true purpose of entering the ark is to leave it. G‑d command us – as He commanded Noah – not to remain in the protective spiritual environment of Torah study and prayer, but to emerge from it, enter the world, and transform the world into G‑d’s home.1 Likutei Sichot, vol. 1, pp. 9–10.
