Explanations of the Flood in the Days of Noah

In this fascinating hour-long lecture, Rabbi Alon Anava gives in-depth explanations about why G-d chose to destroy the people and all the land creatures with water in the days of Noah, and not in a different way.

He also answers the questions: Why did G-d decree exactly 40 days of rain (Genesis 7:4)? and why did G-d bring such a drastic punishment? Those are just a few of the questions that Rabbi Anava answers.
