Bereishit, because Everything Needs a Good Origin Story – Sam Zitin, Associate Director of St. Louis NCSY

Like any good story, the Torah begins with the origin of EVERYTHING: Bereishit. Just as with Spiderman, ‘with great power comes great responsibility’, but when the people in this first chapter of the Torah are given the chance to take responsibility, they do not. They fail. In this season following Yom Kippur, Sam Zitin, associate director of St.. Louis NCSY reminds us that we should look at our own lives and determine if we are taking responsibility for our actions.
