Rabbi Ari Enkin, Rabbinic Director, United with Israel, teaches us an important lesson on appreciation based on this week’s Torah portion.

As Noah is preparing to finally leave the ark, he sends out a dove to find dry land, and the dove returns with an olive leaf/branch in its beak.

The wording that the verse uses is ‘taraf befi’hah,” which is an oddly aggressive word, considering  the circumstances.

From this we learn an important lesson, as shared by Rabbi Ari Enkin.
