Parshat Bereishit
Dear Rabbi Gordon,

Thank you for Life Leasons from Parshat Bereishit. You mentioned you grew up in New Jersey. I grew up in Livingston. Where did you grow up?

there is the possibility that the cherubim can destroy the soul of any who get too close because the power of G_d that is within them.

"One flesh" post-marriage
I have a question regarding the expression of "one flesh" of the husband and wife beyond a divorce through the children. You said that children will always "keep their parents together" - does that also mean their one-ness is therefore never really severed? Does it mean anything at all to the new marriage of the divorcees?
