Description

Interest in the Seven Commandments for the Children of Noah is growing, and many Gentiles worldwide have committed to observe them. Before Ask Noah International (ANI) published The Divine Code, a comprehensive, clear, and expert guide in English for observance and in-depth study of these Noahide precepts was lacking.

When it was published in Hebrew as Sheva Mitzvot HaShem, it was enthusiastically endorsed by prominent Torah scholars. It is unique among other books on this subject, as an authoritative text that is footnoted with extensive Talmudic and post-Talmudic sources. The Divine Code is the authorized translation according to Rabbi Weiner’s review and editing. It includes copious additional explanations and enlightening Editor’s Notes.

The book examines and greatly clarifies the foundations and details of the Noahide precepts. Rabbi Weiner begins by identifying and applying the fundamental principles by which the practical requirements for righteous living are determined within Torah law for pious Gentiles. It contains eight sections, beginning with Fundamentals of the Faith, followed by sections that provide comprehensive explanations of each of the Seven Commandments and their many offshoots. It includes an Appendix on the Pious Gentile and Ger Toshav in Torah Law.

Several section introductions are written by the renown Rabbi J. Immanuel Schochet, o.b.m., a leading Torah scholar and author of popular books on Torah-based spirituality and philosophy. Additional section introductions are contributed by Joe M. Regenstein, Ph.D., a leading expert on guidelines in the meat industry for animal welfare; Arthur A. Goldberg, J.D., author of Light in the Closet; Rabbi Shimon D. Cowen, Ph.D., Director of the Institute for Judaism and Civilization, and (the editor) Michael Schulman, Ph.D., Executive Director of ANI and Asknoah.org.

This book is recommended for late teen and adult Gentiles who desire to correctly understand and observe the Torah-based Noahide Code.

Sample Reader’s Reviews

#1: I just want to express my heartfelt thanks and appreciation for the hard work and energy you have all put into this project. The first of its kind! It is a truly incredible work. Noahides owe you all a great debt of gratitude for what you have done. I have been on my own spiritual journey now for almost ten years and have many times considered conversion to Judaism as I cannot accept non-Torah theology and practice. Now because of your hard work and sacrifice, I feel that I can finally give my family a tradition of belief I can truly believe in. Thank you.

#2: Today I am finally holding in my hands a copy of your book “The Divine Code” as well as the little Prayer Booklet for Noahides. I just wanted to say “thank you” for such an informative, thought provoking and soul searching book. Now I can really and further implement its practical emphasis and ideals in my life. I am sure that I echo the same sentiments and attitude as most of my Noahide brothers and sisters all over the world. Shalom and may the G-d of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob richly reward you in your endeavors to make His Will known to the Worldwide International Community.

With the Help of Heaven, Tammuz 6, 5768 / July 9, 2008

I saw the good book, well-written and aptly titled Sheva Mitzvot HaShem, compiled and authored by the Rabbi and great scholar, Rabbi Moshe Weiner, may he live for many long and good days. I have also seen the immense work that was required to explain all the matters of the Seven Commandments for the Children of Noah, and this was done very well, written in simple, clear language, so that the reader can easily comprehend it.

I bless him that G-d should send him success in all his endeavors, to continue in his holy work, and to author and publish more works in excellent physical health. And may it be G-d’s will that he see blessing in the work of his hands, that he has prepared for the sake of G-d, blessed be He.

Waiting for G-d’s salvation and mercy,
Shlomo Moshe Amar
Chief Rabbi of Israel
