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) cursing G-d, (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. Noahide communities around the world have affiliated with Ask Noah. 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.
