Rebbetin Riddle Says...

Light Makes Right
  The Power of Happiness!A person can fool some people all of the time  

The Lubavitcher Rebbe asks a very interesting question on this week's Torah portion. We read that G-d said, "Let there be light." Yet, the Rebbe asks, what good was light when there was nothing around to benefit from it!

After all, the purpose of light is to illuminate something! And before the earth, plants, animals or man existed, there was nothing to illuminate. So why did G-d create light first? It doesn't seem to make sense.

However, the Rebbe explains the concept with a parable. When an architect designs a building, first he draws the building as it will look when completed. Similarly, G-d created light first -- because light represents the ultimate purpose of the world!

By learning Torah and performing Mitzvos, we bring light into the world. When Moshiach comes, we all will see that light. May Moshiach come immediately!

Rabbi Riddle's Kwazy Kwestions:
  1. Who was the fastest sprinter in history?
  1. Adam. Because he was first in the human race!
