Is a Historic Pillar Allowed?

Updated: Sep 5, 2022

Divine Code for August 31, 2022

Today: Page 149

Topic 5:12 -- 5:13

Jacob put up a pillar to worship G-d. This pleased G-d. But when the surrounding naties began to use pillars to worship idols, G-d hated the use of pillars and forbade it to both Jews and Noahides.

Although Noahides are permitted to worship G-d in any decent place and on any kind of floor, floor tile, or other solid object to prostrate themselves on, it must never be a solid and permanent stone or pillar.

Placing a pillar as a monument that marks historic locations or honors special individuals or event in history, are permitted.
