The 7 Commandments in G-d’s Moral Code for Mankind:

Recognized and Praised by Major Government Leaders

The Noahide (or Noachide) moral code of 7 Universal Commandments was given to Noah and his children after the Flood. These commandments would assure Noah and his children, the pioneers of the new human race, that humanity would never degenerate into a jungle again. These commandments prohibit (1) idolatry, (2) blasphemy, (3) homicide, (4) forbidden relations, (5) robbery, and (6) eating meat that was taken from a still-living animal (cruelty to animals), and they also include a requirement (7) for societies establish courts of justice. The details included in these commandments provide the guidelines for truly ethical behavior, and they serve as the Divine Code that is the foundation of all true morality.

We at Ask Noah International are dedicated to teaching about these commandments in the light of their sources in the Torah of Moses, along with insights on the nature of creation and the important roles of all people as individuals and community members. When we fulfill our potential within the context of this Divine covenant, the creation is spiritually elevated to reach its intended goal. This is how the world becomes a beautiful gem – a place where G-d can (and will) dwell with us in a revealed way!

Remember: You can be a beacon of light to dispel the darkness in the world, by reaching out to others with acts of goodness and kindness.

These 7 Goals will uplift your life and the lives of those around you:

            1. Increase your Knowledge of the One True G-d.
            2. Respect G-d’s Holy Name.
            3. Respect the Sanctity of Human Life.
            4. Respect the Classic Family.
            5. Respect the Property of Others.
            6. Respect All Creatures.
            7. Uphold Righteousness in your Judicial System.

The 7 Noahide Commandments are G-d’s Moral Code for Mankind.

We invite your participation, and especially,
your Acts of Goodness and Kindness to Pay it Forward!

The Light of TorahFrom Ethics of the Fathers, mishnah 5:19 –

“Whoever possesses the following three characteristics is of the disciples of Abraham, and the three opposite characteristics, is of the disciples of the wicked Bilaam [Numbers chs. 22-24]. The disciples of Abraham possess a good eye, a humble spirit, and a meek soul. The disciples of the wicked Bilaam possess an evil eye, an arrogant spirit, and a greedy soul. What is the difference between the disciples of Abraham and the disciples of the wicked Bilaam? The disciples of Abraham ‘eat’ [enjoy the fruits of their good qualities] in this world and inherit the World to Come, as it is stated, ‘To cause those who love Me [G-d] to inherit an everlasting possession [the World to Come], and I will fill their storehouses [in this world].’ [Proverbs 8:21] But the disciples of the wicked Bilaam…”

An explanation by the Rebbe: “Although the ultimate intent is that all positive personal qualities be expressed in one’s conduct, the mishnah teaches us that, independent of a person’s positive acts, he will receive a reward for his positive character traits alone [which one can achieve by self-improvement]. Conversely, [Divine] retribution is meted out for [continuing in] the possession of undesirable character traits, even when they are not expressed in actual conduct.” (From Sichos on the Torah portion Chukas-Balak, 5746 / 19’86.)
