Roman “Heaven Fearers” and the 2nd Holy Temple

In this short audio lesson, the Director of Ask Noah explains a phenomenon in time of the Second Temple (350 B.C.E.-70 C.E.). In many places, there were monotheistic people known as “Heaven Fearers” among the pagan Romans. As the name implies, they were Gentiles who were adhering to the one true G-d. Therefore, their spiritual loyalty was to the Jewish Sages and the Holy Temple.
