United Noahide Academies ®
United Noahide Academies® (UNA) is a multifaceted program to provide resources for worldwide study of the Noahide Code, and to organize and facilitate local study groups.
The foundation for these studies is provided by the landmark publication, Sheva Mitzvot HaShem (Seven Divine Commandments), compiled in Hebrew by Rabbi Moshe Weiner of Jerusalem, and published in English as “The Divine Code.”
Presently, email correspondence courses are available for those who wish to learn at their own pace. There is no prerequisite for the beginning level class, and registration for our advanced level classes by email is open for Noahides who are 18 or older, and for Noahide high-school students with parental consent. There are also growing numbers of affiliated local study groups, lead by Orthodox Rabbis or observant Noahides.
The Director of Ask Noah International (ANI) and the United Noahide Academies® (UNA) project, Dr. Michael Schulman, is available for arranging interviews or speaking engagements. Inquiries may be placed through our Contact Us page.
