Torat Chaim: The Righteousness of Noach Print E-mail

parshaThe 12th of Shevat is the Yahrtzeit of Rav Tzvi Hersh Shor (1635), author of Toras Chaim. Noach’s praise is limited in the verses because he should not have waited until after the flood to make offerings to God, but before, when they could have protected his generation.

Noach is called a righteous man in his “generations,” plural, because he brought good to all future generations, but none to his specific generation.(Torat Chaim – Eiruvin, Chapter 2)

The 12th is also the Yahrtzeit of:

Rav Meir's daughter, Michle was married to Rav Elchonon Wasserman, Rosh Yeshiva of Baranovich. Rav Meir first served as Rav in Libau, Kurland , and subsequently in Salant, Kobrin, and Shavli.

Rav Shmuel Chamoula (1942-2004).

Rav Shabtai Aton [Atun], Rosh Yeshivas Reishis Chochmah (1925-2006).
