Devash: Parashat Bereishit



Now there's even more Torah to learn and explore!

Open the Parashat Bereishit (year 1) magazine to explore: What kind of tree was in Gan Eden? What does it mean for us "to rule over" the earth? Why were humans created last?

Open the Parashat Bereishit (year 2) magazine to explore: What happened between Kayin and Hevel? Why did God create the earth? What was special about the sixth day?

Open the Parashat Bereishit (year 3) magazine to explore: Why were people created last in creation? What does the first word of the Torah mean? And what can we learn from an imperfect world?
