Parsha Noach Discussion Questions

In honor of  recently beginning the Torah again, we have  launched our Book of Bereshit (Genesis) Engagement Project.

For the next 3 months, as we read from the Book of Bereshit,  every week we will be posting discussion questions that we hope families will use to discuss the Torah portion over Shabbat, as well as either a video D’var Torah or a unique Camp Ramah parsha quiz.

This week’s discussion questions were  developed by this past summer’s Machon campers, when they were in Shoafim.   We encourage you to post any of your family’s answers to the questions in the comments section below.

Parsha Noach Discussion Questions

Developed by:

Koby Nachenberg, Thomas Meyers, Talia Feinberg, Camerin Elkin, and Jordan Miller


  • Do you think it was really necessary for God to spring the flood across the earth?
  • Why were the measurements and requirements for the ark so specific?
  • Why does God repeat all of the instructions? Don’t you think Noah understood the directions enough the first time around?
  • Do you think it is fair that the animals that weren’t on the ark died? Do you think that those animals were evil?
  • Why did they send out the raven before the dove? Why do you think they sent out two different kinds of birds?
  • Why do you think the raven did not come back?
  • What does it mean to you that God promised that the world would never be destroyed again?
