The intent of these Prayers for Noahides is to provide personal, family, and congregational prayers for morning, afternoon and evening services that are appropriate for Gentiles who follow the Noahide Code. Psalms and prayers have now been added that can be said leading up to, on, and after Rosh Hashanah (the annual Day of Judgment for all people), and there is also a Psalm for recitation on Hanukah.

As Noahide communities are growing and organizing around the world, some have been establishing places and times for congregational prayers. We hope that this publication will be a useful guide, and the expanded selection of Psalms and verses from the Hebrew Bible is offered as a resource for prayers and praises to G-d. May this bring each participant to a closer, more personal relationship with the Holy One, blessed be He.

This booklet draws upon the traditional Jewish liturgy (the Orthodox Siddur) to provide guidance for orderly prayers for Noahide synagogues and prayer groups. Wherever appropriate we have used this, while also integrating it with the daily prayers for Noahides as published in the booklet Prayers, Blessings, Principles of Faith, and Divine Service for Noahides,” 7th Edition, and in the book “The Divine Code,” Third Edition. These include prayers composed for Noahides by Rabbi J. Immanuel Schochet o.b.m., and Rabbi Moshe Weiner.

Care has been taken that the prayers included here do not encroach on the spiritual heritage of the Jewish people, and there is no attempt made to establish additional obligations for Gentiles beyond the Noahide Code.
