R’ Levi Yitzchak Schneerson – The persistence of life through impossible odds is thus the binding thread of these three seemingly disparate ideas: the introduction of humankind to a world ‘unformed and void’ on Rosh Hashanah, the women who gave life despite their barrenness, and the ark that gave a desolate world a chance to grow again.” (From: An Inner Perspective)

Revelation 21:1-5 Then I saw a new heaven and a newearth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and the sea was no more. And I saw the holy city, newJerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Behold, the dwelling place of God is with man. He will dwell with them, and they will be His people, and God Himself will be with them as their God. He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.” And He who was seated on the throne said, “Behold, I am making all things new.” Also, He said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.”
