Rabbi Lazer Brody: High and Dry

From Rabbi Brody

High and Dry

Here's an interesting tidbit for this week's Torah portion, which tells of Noah and the flood:

Nearly two years ago, the London Guardian reported about a secret Pentagon report that was suppressed by President Bush, warning that imminent climatic changes and natural disasters will destroy the USA and much of the world, and that large areas will sink under rising seas. Read the entire article here, it's an eyeopener. Thanks to Tamar Yonah of Israel National Radio for the lead.

For hundreds of years, kabbalists have been saying that entire continents will disappear under water as Redemption Day approaches. Today, scientists around the world are carefully monitoring earth's rising waters. Things are changing, just as our sages have predicted.

Worried? The Talmud says (tractate Kiddushin 69a) that Israel is the highest of lands. Many nonbelievers use the above statement as "proof" to the inaccuracy of Talmud. When the rest of the world will be under water, and Israel will be high and dry, all shall see the universal and eternal truth of every letter in the Gemorra.

This time, you won't need an ark. Start thinking about moving to Israel.

The Gemorra also teaches us that the Beis HaMikdash is the highest place in Israel - that makes it the highest place on earth!
