Noahide Nations is happy to announce the blessing that Hashem has privileged us with to join Yeshiva Pirchei Shoshanim in the creation of the Online Seven Noahide Laws Study Program. The Rabbinic staff at Yeshiva Pirchei Shoshanim is busy with its in-depth research to pull all the Torah content from the thousands of sources on the Noahide Laws. Noahide Nations’ role will be to bring this incredible study program to the English speaking world to do our part in bringing about the redemption of Mankind.
The Torah has an all-encompassing vision for mankind in which every person, Jew and gentile, has a role to play. The Torah’s ideal role for the non-Jew is that of the Noahide (in Hebrew, the Ben Noach, Child of Noah). This role is defined by a large body of halacha (law) called the Sheva Mitzvos Bnei Noach, the Seven Commandments of the Children of Noah. You may remember President Ronald Reagan acknowledging the Noahide Laws for the ‘National Day of Reflection’ celebration. President George H.W. Bush and the 102nd U.S. Congress officially recognized the Seven Universal Laws of Noah in legislation which was passed by both houses. Congress and the President of the United States indicated in Public Law 102-14, 102nd Congress, that the United States of America was founded upon the Seven Universal Laws of Noah, and that these Laws have been the bedrock of society from the dawn of civilization. They also acknowledged that the Seven Laws of Noah are the foundation upon which civilization stands and that recent weakening of these principles threaten the fabric of civilized society, and that justified preoccupation in educating the Citizens of the United States of America and future generations is needed. For this purpose, this Public Law designated March 26, 1991 as Education Day, U.S.A..
More and more non-Jews have turned to the ancient wisdom of the Torah and its sages to seek answers and for guidance as to what God expects from them. The hunger for this information has grown exponentially over the past several years. Unfortunately, there are virtually no authentic or complete resources for the rabbinic world as to how to provide for those non-Jews seeking answers. We are changing that!
To that end Noahide Nations has teamed up with Yeshivas Pirchei Shoshanim who has responded to this growing demand for information, Yeshivas Pirchei Shoshanim has undertaken an Online Noahide Study Project of vast historical importance: to produce a comprehensive, practical, and indisputably authoritative study of the entire corpus of Torah literature pertaining to the Noahide laws. The Rabbinic staff of Yesiva Pirchei Shoshanim institution has gone above and beyond in this endeavor. From researching original editions of long-censored rabbinic texts to intense consultation with Torah sages, we are charting the development of every element of Noahide law from its source in the Torah all the way through modern responsa.
The goal of this remarkable is two-fold: 1) to produce a halachic resource for the Rabbinic world and, 2) to produce a practical guide to Noahide observance and belief for the non-Jewish world.
Though not necessary for this course if one is determined, then one should learn Hebrew. One can learn the language thru Shema Yisrael’s Learn Hebrew program. Along with that one should seek a recognized Orthodox body of Torah Scholars who is well versed in this area of Jewish Law and is as well recognized and accepted in the traditional Torah world.
This project will utilize the entire rabbinic staff and resources of Yeshivas Pirchei Shoshanim. Our rabbinic oversight committee for the project is comprised of the following scholars (their biographies are available HERE):
Rabbi Avraham Chaim Bloomenstiel, Project Director
Rabbi Yitzchok Tzvi Oshinsky
Rabbi Peretz Moncharsh
The yeshiva course will last ten months and cover both the theology and 7 Laws provided by the Torah for the Noahide. See the Course Syllabus to learn what is covered by this course.
