Just as the horrifically evil events we have recently witnessed, as
incomprehensible as they are, have shaken the entire world for the
worse. So every good deed done now can reveal untold blessings and
change the world for the better. That is why G-d gave Seven 'NOAHIDE'
Commandments. The Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem M.
Shneerson, a prophet and perhaps the greatest Jewish leader of all
time, announced over ten years ago that we are entering the Messianic
era every good deed done now will reveal untold blessings and infinite
good. Yes, by observing these seven living principles you can actually
help make a new world; a world without war, misery, injustice, cruelty,
and even disease. You can help make the world into the paradise it was
when it was first created.
Consider the story of a man similar to yourself. The Torah tells us
that over four thousand years ago, some 1,500 years after creation, the
world was as confused and morally bankrupt as it is today. G-D had
given ADAM six basic commandments prohibiting idolatry, murder,
thievery, blasphemy, and adultery. But one thousand five hundred years
later only One Man was left that had the courage and integrity to keep
them ...his name was Noah. Noah became the father of all mankind. He
survived the ensuing flood, and began a NEW WORLD with a new covenant
from G-d; The Seven 'Noahide' Commandments. You are a direct
descendent of Noah. You have inherited his courage and ability to
really make a difference…..for the good.
Almost a thousand years later occurred the most important event in the
history of the world; G-d gave the Torah to the Jews from Mount Sinai
The Creator of the universe actually revealed HIMSELF to an entire
NATION, spoke to them and gave them His Law and the power to observe
it. In this Torah are also found the Seven Noahide
Commandments, basic principals of conduct for all mankind, with the
power and blessing to do them Since then, whoever observes these
commandments because they appear in G-d's Torah receives a place in the
world to come and infinite POWER and BLESSING from the Almighty to
change the ENTIRE WORLD FOR GOOD.
Our goal is to make a perfect world. As, the prophet Tzfania
(3:9) says: "Then I will transform all mankind ...to call the name of
G-d and serve Him together. To do this requires a true leader, someone
leadership of King David, wisdom of King Solomon and inspiration of
Moses, someone who can conduct this symphony of redemption.
The Lubavicher Rebbe, Rabbi M.M. Shneerson, who possesses all
these qualities of the Messiah we have been awaiting said, "All that is
lacking is the coronation. "Even the very 'Motto' of Judaism; 'Shma
Yisroel', stresses the importance the non-Jews play in this
perfection: "Hear Israel... G-d is One" means that with the arrival of Moshiach
the The G-d of Israel; the King and Creator of the universe, will be
'ONE' i.e. worshiped by all peoples.
In fact the entire Torah is filled with G-d's promises to bring
Messiah, but it all depends on our good deeds, and that is why G-d gave
the gentiles Seven Commandments directly through Moses in the Torah.
You can help coronate the Messiah and bring complete redemption to
yourself and the entireworld
by observing the Seven Noahide Commandments and declaring
whenever possible: "We want Moshiach NOW!" "Long live the King Moshiach!'
Make your life count, make the difference! The Lubavitcher Rebbe,
Rabbi Menachem M. Shneerson For over fifty years His leadership of all
World Jewry has been an unbroken and unparalleled chain of miraculous
advice, wisdom, bravery, unlimited love for all mankind and complete
knowledge of the entire Torah and all branches of knowledge. On March
1991 the USA Congress declared the Rebbe's birthday the
official 'Education day', and in that same year they proclaimed the
seven Noahide laws as the basis of all ethical values and
principals upon which USA and all civilization depend
1. PROHIBITION OF
IDOLATRY Belief in One G-d
Every person should believe in the existence of the one and only
Creator of the world. He creates the world and every person, and knows
all our actions and thoughts. He observes them and judges each person
according to his deeds. He is the one and only G-d whom we must worship
and to whom we should pray.
The practical meaning of this commandment is: a complete prohibition to
bow down or worship idols of any kind or to believe in another god or
any other created entity or force.
2. PROHIBITION OF
BLASPHEMY Respect G-d
Each person has to give respect to the Creator of the world, who
granted him life and the world to live in. The practical meaning of
this commandment is the prohibition to curse G-d or call Him any
derogatory or disrespectful name.
3. PROHIBITION OF
MURDER Respect life
Man is created in the ‘image’ of G-d. Man’s life is a holy gift, which
no one has the permission to take away from him. One should respect and
encourage the continuation of mankind. One who kills a soul it is
considered as though he has murdered the entire world and harmed the
Creator in whose image he was created. The practical meaning of the
commandment is a complete prohibition to kill any human being,
including a fetus in its mother’s womb.
4. PROHIBITION OF THEFT
Respect human property
G-d has granted each person the ownership over his
money and possessions, and no one is permitted to take them away from
him. This includes also the prohibition to holdover payment, the
prohibition to kidnap a person, young or old. The practical meaning of
this commandment is a strict prohibition of stealing or robbery or any
kind of taking a possession away from one’s disposal by force or by
fraud or in any other illegal way. Sensitivity to another person’s
money or property inspires us also to do acts of charity and kindness.
5. PROHIBITION OF
ADULTERY Respect marriage
G-d created firstly the man and the woman as one unit,
and then divided them to two separate entities, which are in need of
each other in order to reach completeness. Married life and its laws
are, therefore, the basis for the existence of mankind and the
completeness of the family and community. This comes into expression
also in keeping values of modesty and discreetness in matters of
The practical meaning of this commandment is the prohibition of incest
and adultery. This includes the prohibition of sexual relationship
between relatives of first degree, between a married woman and another
man, between two males or with animals.
6. PROHIBITION TO EAT
PART CUT FROM A LIVING CREATURE Respect animals
G-d created living creatures in the world, and we must respect their
existence. As opposed to the flora, which is renewed continuously, harm
to animals is irreversible. Although the Torah is not negating the
eating of meat, it sets strict limits to the ability of a person to use
animals for his needs. This commandment, which obliges us not to be
indifferent even to the suffering of an animal, enhances also our
obligation to be aware of another person’s sorrow, not to hurt him and
to help him come out of his stress. The practical meaning of this
commandment is prohibition to eat a limb or tear out a limb taken from
an animal while it is still alive.
7. APPOINTMENT OF
JUDGES Establishing a court system
In order that all the above laws will be
properly observed, courts of justice should be established in every
city (or zone), with judges, who will make decisions with regard these
commandments and have the authority to punish those who transgress
them. Every person who has an argument will be able to go to these
appointed judges and obey their judgment.
