How Strong Is Your Ark?

Reams have been written about the first verse in this week’s Torah portion:

These are the offspring of Noah; Noah as a righteous man, perfect in his generation…

Question One: The verse begins with “these are the offspring of Noah,” but never tells us who these offspring were. Rather, it merely tells us that Noah was righteous. Who (hint: what) were his offspring? I’ll leave you to think about an answer; perhaps it will be addressed next time we review this Torah portion.
