An Ark or a Tent?

Is your home, or your Church/Synagogue/ Islamic Centre, or your social group, or your nation, an Ark or a Tent?

Supposed re-creation of the mythical Noah's Ark.


Bedouin Tent.


In the August 2019 edition of  the  "The Jewish News of Sarasota/Manatee" (Florida),  Mr. Howard Tevlowitz, CEO of the Sarasota/Manatee Jewish Federation has this to say.

"Let's look at two biblical personalities - Abraham and Noah -  and how they addressed challenges during their times when there was a lot of uncertainty.

Abraham was able to find an approach and a world view that enabled him to be Av Hamon Goyim, the father of many nations.

Noah, when faced with turmoil and crisis, built an ark which sheltered his family and his future.

Abraham was known for an open tent where he invited others for shelter and respite".


Thank you Mr. Howard Tevlowitz for your wisdom!  I am a Christian who favours Abraham's open tent over Noah's sheltering ark!
