Rabbi Mishael Zion

Our special guest today is Rabbi Mishael Zion, Co-Director of the Bronfman Youth Fellowships, a diverse community of 1,000 outstanding young Jews from Israel and North America who contribute their talents to the Jewish community and the world at large. Originally from Jerusalem, Mishael was ordained by Yeshivat Chovevei Torah, and has taught at the Hartman Institute and the Skirball Center. Mishael is the author of the celebrated “A Night to Remember: The Haggadah of Contemporary Voices” and the Israeli best-seller "Halaila HaZeh: Haggadah Yisraelit." He lives in New York and blogs at Text and the City.

This week's Torah portion- Parashat Noach (Genesis 6:9-11:32)- features the famous story of Noah's ark and of the great flood, as well as the story of the Tower of Babel. Our conversation focuses on the sadder, lesser known ending of the story of Noah, on the idea of Noah as a survivor, and on Noah as a precursor to Abraham.
