Lessons From Noach's Ark

Everything I need to know about life, I learned from Noah's Ark...

 

One: Don't miss the boat.

Two: Remember that we are all in the same boat.

Three: Plan ahead. It wasn't raining when Noah built the Ark.  

Four: Stay fit. When you're 600 years old, someone may ask you to do something really big.  

Five: Don't listen to critics; just get on with the job that needs to be done.  

Six: Build your future on high ground.  

Seven: For safety's sake, travel in pairs.  

Eight: Speed isn't always an advantage. The snails were on board with the cheetahs.  

Nine: When you're stressed, float a while. 

Ten: Remember, the Ark was built by amateurs; the Titanic by professionals.

 

THE FOUR EXILES

THE FOUR EXILES   Breishis 1:2. 2:10-14.   When Hashem created the world, He knew that the Jewish people would be in exile 4 times (not including Egypt). The first exile was that of Bavel (Babylon), the second, Modai (Medea), the third, Yavan (Greece), and the fourth, Edom.

It is this fourth exile that we have been suffering in for almost 2000 years.   Hashem hinted to these 4 exiles in the story of creation. At the beginning of creation it is written that, "The world was tohu and vohu, and darkness covering the deep."  The four phrases -- 1) "tohu", 2) "vohu", 3) "darkness", and 4) "covering the deep" -- hint to the 4 exiles.
