Foundations of Faith for Noahides Beginners Free Course!

By Rabbi Moshe Perets

Fundamental Definitions:

The Master of the universe commanded Adam, the first man, on the day of his creation, as it says:

“And the Lord God commanded ‘ man’ (Adam) …” God commanded six precepts to Adam (and one to Noah):

  1.  Believe and trust in the One God – Do not worship idols;

  2. Respect God and praise Him – Do not blaspheme G-d’s Name;

  3. Respect the sanctity of human Life – Do not commit murder or injury;

  4. G-d defined marriage Respect the Family Do not have forbidden relations;

  5. Respect the property of other people – Do not commit theft;

  6. Respect living creatures and avoid cruelty -Do not eat meat taken from a still-living animal;

  7. Establish Courts of Law – Justice is the foundation of peace.

The 6th commandment “And God blessed Noah, … But flesh, with its soul in its blood you should not eat.” was given by God later on.

These Seven Precepts are called the Seven Commandments for Humanity – “Children of Noah,” i.e. Bnei Noah, or Gentiles, who are non-Jews in contrast to the Ten Commandments witch were given to the Jews – Children of Israel.

When Moses our teacher was called up on Mount Sinai, he received the Torah’s commandments directly from the Holy One, blessed be He, together with their explanations.

Moses received the entire Torah from G-d – both the Written Torah (the Five Books of Moses) and the Oral Torah.

The Oral Torah is the explanation of all the commandments, which are very concisely recorded in those Five Books.

Included in the Torah, G-d also repeated and gave to Moses the Seven Commandments for the Children of Noaĥ, along with their explanations and their details.
