“אֵלֶּה, תּוֹלְדֹת נֹחַ–נֹחַ אִישׁ צַדִּיק תָּמִים הָיָה, בְּדֹרֹתָיו: אֶת-הָאֱלֹהִים, הִתְהַלֶּךְ-נֹחַ”
“These are the generations of Noah. Noah was a righteous man, blameless in his generation. Noah walked with God.”
After the sin of Adam all of his descendants are called ‘Children of Adam’ to indicate that they are part of his line and correction process.
After Noach the people of the world are called ‘children of Noach’ because the world was preserved because of him.
When a man is called to the Torah for reading, he is called by his name and his father’s name. It links the man to his spiritual line and his correction process.
Exodus 20:4 (From the Ten Commandments)
“כִּי אָנֹכִי יְהוָה אֱלֹהֶיךָ, אֵל קַנָּא–פֹּקֵד עֲוֹן אָבֹת עַל-בָּנִים עַל-שִׁלֵּשִׁים וְעַל-רִבֵּעִים, לְשֹׂנְאָי”
“or I YHVH your God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and the fourth generation of those who hate me,”
Doing good in the name of the parents, especially the fathers and grandfathers, helps with their Tikkun and soul elevation and, at the same time, helps the living descendants.
