B’nei Noach

Filed under: What can we do? — Reb Moshe @ 1:31 am

G-d gave Noah and all his descendants (B’nei Noach or “children of Noah”) seven commandments to follow.

Prohibition of idolatry

Prohibition of blasphemy

Prohibition of murder

Prohibition of theft

Prohibition of illicit relations

Prohibition of eating live meat

Prohibition of failing to establish courts of justice

Teaching the world and being a leader to the B’nei Noach’s is an untouched and important area for us to address. I am considering taking a little of this upon myself but not without more thought. If you are B’nei Noach and visiting the site, please give me your imput on how I can better assist the community.

I do believe it is important to focus on Jews as priority but a little bit of energy should go out to the world in declaring Hashem’s ONEness.


  1. Shalom to all

    im a Bnei Noach my imput is, how to married another Bnei Noach?

  2. I’m a B’nai Noach. I had a Jewish father and a Gentile mother. We’re basically sort of non-Jewish Jews. Apart from being enjoined not to observe the Sabbath as full Jews do and being exempt from keeping kashrut, everything else Noahides do goes to studying Torah, deepening oneself spiritually and drawing closer to G-d. We can’t always choose who we’re born from and the reality is that contemplating conversion to Judaism is a big deal because one must take being a Jew seriously before becoming one. One assumes additional responsibilities before G-d.

    That being said, I like your site Reb Moshe! The mission of the Jewish people is not only to bring Jews back to the Torah but to spread the holiness of G-d’s light throughout the world so He can see the holiness of all his human children. Its a big challenge and no doubt one day the Torah will come forth from Jerusalem and the Word of Hashem from Zion.
