Introduction

 

Welcome to this Introduction to the Torah’s Laws and Faith for Humanity – based on the 7 Commandments for the Children of Noah (the "Noahide" Commandments), through which Gentiles (all Non-Jews) accomplish their part in bringing peace and righteousness to the world.

 

Mentors

 

Rabbi Moshe Perets, Rabbinical Studies and MD at the Brussels Medical School and Stem Cell Research Department - Hebrew University, Jerusalem;

Rabbi Moshe Weiner, Jerusalem, author of Sheva Mitzvot Hashem (in Hebrew) and The Divine Code (in English) as the authorized "Shulchan Aruch" for the Noahide Code;Rabbi Assi Harel, Rabbinical Teacher in Tsfat, Israel.

 

Objectives

 

These courses cover the Torah’s Seven Universal Commandments and their details in Torah Law (Halacha), as well as their inner spiritual dimensions. These apply for all Gentiles (Non-Jews), who in the language of Torah are called "B'nei Noach" or descendants of Noah (Noahides). Students will be expected to fully grasp the subjects taught and learn how Gentiles can implement these principles into their everyday personal and professional lives. The subjects taught are:

 

Unit 1: Foundations of the Noahide Code (a) The Fundamentals of the Faith

(b) The 13 Principles of Faith by the Rambam

(c) Torah Study Parameters Gentiles

(d) Prayer and Blessings for Gentiles

Unit 2: Inner Spiritual Dimensions: The Gate of Unity and Faith

Unit 3: The Seven Gates of Righteous Knowledge

Unit 4: Rabbinical Exegesis of Geneses and Noah

 

 

Instruction

 

These courses will be taught through a variety of instructional methods: live on-line weekly lectures, 3 times a week; watching on-line videos; reading and analyzing classic and contemporary texts; supplementary instructional materials; and written assignments and on-line assessments.

 

 The courses provide an introduction to the modern international Noahide movement, and the origins and foundations of the Noahide Code. Major subjects include Original Monotheism, Torah Study for Gentiles, Prayer and Benedictions, the Inner Spiritual Dimensions of the 7 Universal Commandments, Rabbinical Exegesis on the Torah Portions of Genesis and Noah, Torah Values for Interactions Between People, Establishing the Bond Between a Person and G-d, and a Person's Spiritual Self-Understanding.

 

Core texts include The Divine Code and the Book of Genesis with the explanations by Rashi. These are supplemented with various works and teachings by Rabbinic scholars circa 2000 years ago until the present day. Students will conduct careful reading of the texts, applying research skills to analyze and clearly identify the meaning and message of the teachings.

 

Timing

 

The courses comprise four means of instruction, with a minimum of 320 hours expected. Students can plan on completing the course over a 2 semester period. However, they have seventy-six weeks in which to complete the course requirements.

 

Structure

 

The four means of instruction are: 1. Live On-line Lectures: Most lectures will be given by Rabbi Moshe Perets and Rabbi Assi Harel. The Video Recorded Lectures are given by Rabbi Moshe Weiner. Special Topical Lectures will be given by Dr. Michael Schulman. 2. Video Lectures and Assessments 3.

Assignments

 

Following each course unit or sub-unit, you will complete a written assignment. These assignments should be based on a learning log which is kept during the course. Each written assignment should be structured as paragraphs in essay form. It is preferred that you type your assignments. Handwritten assignments must be written legibly, so it is recommended to keep your own photocopy of any handwritten work you submit, in case you will be asked to decipher what you submitted. While you are encouraged to work through the course materials with a study partner, the work submitted must be your own, and plagiarism will have a negative impact on your grade. The assignments will be evaluated/graded and returned to you.

 

Exams

 

There is a final exam for the course (or for each unit individualy). A proctor approved by the Theological Research Institute will administer this exam. The exam may only be taken after all assignments have been submitted. If you have studied the course material as instructed, completed the written assignments, and have taken the time to study and review, then you should be well prepared for the final exam.
