Genesis 5

Them! ©

In this Perek of HaTorah we have the original sin. Discussing is immediately after Rosh HaShanah , the ten days of repentance and Yom Kippur seems like a good ideal. 

 Bereisheit 5.1

 זֶה סֵפֶר תּוֹלְדֹת אָדָם בְּיוֹם בְּרֹא אֱלֹהִים אָדָם בִּדְמוּת אֱלֹהִים עָשָׂה אֹתוֹ:

 Bereisheit 5.2

זָכָר וּנְקֵבָה בְּרָאָם וַיְבָרֶךְ אֹתָם וַיִּקְרָא אֶת־שְׁמָם אָדָם בְּיוֹם הִבָּרְאָם:

This is the book of the generations of Adam. In the day God Created man, in the likeness of G-d He Made him, Bereisheit 5.1.

Male and female He Created them; and blessed them, and named them man [Adam], in the day when they were created,  Bereisheit 5.2.

Notice Bereisheit 1.27 where the same words זָכָר וּנְקֵבָה  Zaw Chawr - Oov Nih Kay Vah are used.

The Blessing is not just on the man and woman but their exclusive reproductive forms for the purpose of creating children after them...

 May Hashem Bless us with making right choices in bring children into the world.  May we bring pure holy G-d Fearing children into being by making the right choices...

May Hashem Bless all who joyfully, lovingly and enthusiastically Observe the Mitzvot of Ha Torah and those who try too...

Blessings and peace,

Dr. Akiva Gamliel
