Torah Questions

Questions from reading the Torah...

1. What is the difference between "clean" and "unclean" animals to be taken onto the ark? Why seven mated pairs of clean animals and one mated pair of unclean animals?

2. What happened to the raven that Noah released from the ark? Did the raven do something special before the dove was released? How come no one ever mentions the raven?

3. Why did Noah freak out over Canaan seeing him naked? I mean, it was Noah who got all drunk and naked. How was Canaan to know Dad was passed out and naked in his tent? Making him and his the slaves of the other two sons was a bit harsh.
