Note that this post is not called The Diamond in the Window (book by Jane Langton). It’s a post about Noah, who was considered a righteous man in his generation.
So here’s the question: was Noah a righteous individual who might have not been so great in a different generation or was a shining light unto all the generations? And why is he looking at this diamond?
Or maybe he’s really looking out the window:
For the answer to these and other tantalizing questions, you will have to visit my friend’s Harry’s post Noach – Is righteousness relative?
The illustrations of Noah with diamond and window were executed by me (with some critical helpful feedback from my daughter) with pen, ink, and then a lot of playing in Photoshop. The aim was whimsical and playful.

Interesting question. I like Harry’s suggestion that maybe there are no answers just an encouragement to look inside our own selves.
I think those are the kinds of parsha posts I like (and I gather Harry does as well), the sort that makes one think and reflect.
And in addition, for me, the ones that make me want to illustrate.
Thanks for pointing out the blog to us. I’ll bookmark it when I get back.
