Parashat Bereishit 5783: Difficult Choices

Posted by Pardes Faculty on October 21, 2022
Topics: Parsha, Pardes from Jerusalem, Bereishit (Genesis), Bereishit, Torah

Bereishit takes us from Creation to God’s decision to destroy the world. From “Tov” – a world filled with good – to “Ra” – a world in which evil prevails.
How do we get there?

In this podcast, Alex Israel and Zvi Hirschfield discuss the process of sin, and the tricks our minds play with us in succumbing to our desires. They discuss choices, human autonomy, and the human potential for great good, and evil.
