Parashat Noach is one of those parshiot where you see the fantastic as well as the mundane. We are first told the incredible story of Noach, how he built the teivah and saved life on Earth. However, at the end of the parasha, our hero plants the first vineyard, becomes the first drunk, and is humiliated. How can this be? How can someone who Hashem selected as the one person to save Bnei Yisrael also be made to appear so regular, so ordinary, so meh?
