Noahide Declarations

As explained by Rabbi Moshe Weiner of Jerusalem:

A Noahide achieves the elevated spiritual status of “Hasid” (Pious) Gentile based on his or her own personal faith, along with faithful observance of the Noahide Code based on the Torah of Moses. An official Noahide Declaration is not required. If a Noahide Declaration is made, it cannot be authentically validated by a “Beis Din” (Orthodox Jewish court) unless it is made in person.

Since the launch of the United Noahide Academies® project at the beginning of Jan. 20’05, Noahide individuals may request to present their Noahide Declaration at a Beis Din recommended by Ask Noah. Please contact us through our ContactUs page for more information.
