After the Flood, the inhabitants of Noah’s Ark resettle the world and communities of people begin to grow once again. And in an act of rebellion, they decided to build a tower reaching up to Heaven.
G-d’s method of stopping them contains a lesson for us all — He sowed division by confusing their languages. The story of the the Tower of Babel demonstrates the great accomplishments unity can bring, even with evil intent.
Look where unity can take us: if we join together to embrace the Al-mighty, to work for Good rather than Evil, imagine what we can accomplish!
