Sefer Sheva Mitzvot HaShem (“The Book of Seven Divine Commandments”) – Volumes I, II and III, is the result of an historic project launched by Ask Noah International in 2005. Expertly compiled in Hebrew by Rabbi Moshe Weiner of Jerusalem and reviewed by prominent Torah scholars, the book examines the halachic details and foundations of the Seven Noahide Commandments. The volumes are written in the style and format of the classic Shulchan Aruch, the Code of Jewish Law by Rabbi Yosef Caro (the “Beit Yosef”). Rabbi Weiner’s work successfully brings an important but neglected area of Torah to the forefront of Rabbinic attention.

Volume I

The four parts in this volume focus on the Noahide commandments between man and G-d, and includes many chapters on the fundamentals of the Noahide faith, the prohibitions of idolatry and blasphemy, and the dietary prohibitions associated with causing unnecessary pain to living creatures. It also includes a scholarly preface by Rabbi Weiner which explains the halachic basis of Jewish outreach to Gentiles for the Sheva Mitzvot.

Volume II

The three parts in this volume focus on the Noahide commandments between man and his fellow man, and includes many chapters on the Noahide prohibitions of murder and harming, forbidden relations (including the topics of marriage and divorce), and theft.

Volume III

This focuses on the Noahide commandment between man and his fellow man that involves the establishment and administration of righteous Laws and Courts. It also includes an Appendix on the Torah Laws relating to a Ger Toshav – a Gentile resident citizen of the Holy Land of Israel, in the times of the First Holy Temple and in the future Messianic Era.

Sefer Sheva Mitzvot HaShem was submitted for review by the world-renowned rabbinic authority, Haga’on Rav Zalman Nechemiah Goldberg shlit”a, member of the Supreme Rabbinical Court of Israel, who examined the full text in detail, added comments in many of the footnotes, and granted his approbation. The set also enjoys approbations from a Chief Rabbi of Israel, Rav Shlomo Moshe Amar; Rav Yakov Y. Eliezrov, Head of the Rabbinical Court of Greater Jerusalem; Rav Gedalia Dov Schwartz, Av Beit Din for both the Chicago Rabbinical Council (CRC) and the Rabbinical Council of America (RCA); and Rav Jacob I. Schochet of Toronto, Canada.
