Rabbi Marc’s A Dash of Drash – Creation of Adam – Good or Bad? Episode 77

Creation of Adam – Good or Bad? is Episode 77 of A Dash of Drash

This week, we begin a whole new cycle of reading the Torah, from the very beginning, Bereshit, Genesis.  On the sixth day, according to the story, Adam, the first human form, is created in God’s image.  Was that a good thing?  What does it mean to be created in God’s image anyway?
