Can a good person do bad things, or only good? Could Noach do anything bad? Did he have free will?
Conversely, can one also be “pure” in their actions, or only in their heart?
Can a pure person do bad things?
Can a bad person be pure at heart?
“That generation transgressed in three areas: idol worship, forbidden relations, and theft. That’s why we are told that Noach guarded himself in three ways:
‘Ish Tzadik’—he didn’t steal;
‘Pure in his generation’—he guarded the family unit;
‘He walked with G-d’—he didn’t turn to idols/other gods.”
Sample questions based on Kli Yakar:
• Why was it important for Noach to counter the bad actions of his generation?
• How can we do the same?
• How is this “midah k’neged midah?” Or isn’t it?

My approach to teaching is to take a “discussion-based constructivist approach” to learning, encouraging children to arrive at their own understanding of Torah through text-based study and a great deal of discussion. I constantly encourage them to think, ask questions and to arrive at their own insights into the Torah.
