When God created man on the 6th day He wanted mankind to live in peace and harmony, through His Mercy. He gave Adam 6 instructions in order to live this way. After the flood He gave Noah a 7th. These are the Noahide Commandments.

Ask a Posek (Judge)
When it comes to learning the Noahide halacha why go to a Rabbi who only has a smicha? Why not ask a Posek who is an expert in halacha.

After The Flood
Ever wonder what happened when Noah and his family exited the Ark after the Flood?
Wisdom From Pirke Avot
Simon the Just…used to say,
“Upon three things the world stands:
On Torah, on (Divine) Service, and on Deeds of Lovingkindness.”
Pirke Avot 1:2
Ben Zoma said,
“Who is wise? The one who learns from all people…
“Who is mighty? The one who subdues the evil inclination…
“Who is rich? The one who rejoices in his portion….
“Who is honored? The one who honors other human beings….”
Pirke Avot 4:1
The Most Important Part of Studying Torah
The most important element in validating interpretations of the written and oral Torah is the concept of Mesorah. Mesorah is the greatest proof to the authenticity of any concept, practice, or interpretation.
Although the seven Noahide laws have their origins in Adam and Noah, God chose to transmit and preserve them via Moses and the giving of the Torah at Sinai. This placed the Seven Mitzvos within the structure and system of Torah study and learning. Therefore, the seven Noahide laws must be interpreted and understood within the context of the Torah.
This point cannot be stressed enough: Jewish, and therefore Noahide, study and interpretation of the Torah is unique and unlike the study of any other religious texts.
The Truth About the Ger
Don't ever be afraid of seeking truth or speaking the truth, as it says in
Truthful lips will be established forever, But a lying tongue is only for a moment
Are Noahides Allowed to Pray?
For Noahides, prayer is considered a mitzvah when performed in response to personal needs or circumstances. If one experiences challenges for which he does not pray, his lack of response is tantamount to a denial of God as the sovereign ruler of all things and all events. When one does pray in such circumstances, it demonstrates reliance and belief in the Creator.
When a Noahide prays to give thanks or praise absent a personal need, he still receives reward for such prayer even though it is not of the same nature as prayer prompted by personal needs.
As with all personal prayers, there are no fixed texts for Noahide prayer. Since all Noahide prayer is essentially personal prayer, it is ideally expressed using sincere words from the heart.
Tools For Noahide Torah Study
The journey of Noahide Torah study is endless in depth and has no destination. You will realize this when your very essence proclaims, "the more I learn, the less I know"! Before you make this proclamation remember that it is a mitzvot for a Noahide to study the Noahide Laws and apply them in every aspect of their life. After you make that proclamation you will realize and appreciate why it is a mitzvot for a Noahide to study the Noahide Laws and apply them. The study of Torah is what gives us our awe of the Creator. The more we study the more awe we gain.

Exploring the Al Chet Prayer
Rabbi Shraga Simmons
Al Chet 6. For the mistakes we committed before You through immorality.
When the Torah speaks of immorality, it usually refers to sexual immorality. Since sex is the strongest human drive (next to survival itself), it can therefore be used to achieve the greatest degree of holiness, or -- as we so often witness -- the greatest degree of debasement.
Did I speak or act in a way that lowered sexuality as a vehicle for spiritual connection?
Do I realize how sexual immorality reduces the spiritual potential of future, more holy unions?

44 Roots of Mistakes
by George Brock
The Sin: The Mistakes committed before You through immorality.
When the Torah speaks of immorality- it usually refers to sexual immorality.
Since sex is the strongest human drive (next to survival itself) it can therefore be used to achieve the greatest degree of holiness.
The Battle: The battle is between- the physical realm seen through one's eyes and the Spiritual realm one sees through belief.
In other words- Any man can be defeated by a strength outside of himself greater than himself or by a weakness on the inside he perceives to be true.
The Cause: Chance Occurrence- Refers to involuntary or purely accidentally or by allowing oneself to dwell on sexual thoughts or fantasies resulting in a physical night time emission.
The Victory: The Tikkun Klali- The ten Psalms of Rabbi Nachman.
Rabbi Nachman taught- The Tikkum (the remedy) for mistakes committed before G-d through immorality is to recite the Tikkun Klali on the same day it happens.
Reciting psalms has the power to release the seed from the Klipah- (the evil forces which Captured it).
The Hebrew word for Psalms (Tehilim) has the numerical value of 485, the exact same numerical value of Lilith- which is the name to the evil force appointed over the Klipah.
Tehilim corresponds numerically also to two Divine names (El and Elohim) combined their numerical value is 485. These two names have the power to release the seed from the Klipah.
The ten Psalms (expressions) has the power to nullify the strength of the Klipah because each one has the opposite counter to the Klipah.
The Goal: Is to Remember.
Illusions are not real, they only exist in one's mind. Fight them in their world and they will disappear. Allow them to come into your world and they will become real.
Quote the Psalms- Rectify the sin.
“Help me to see with my minds eye (intellect). Hear with my ears (understand) and with my heart- Repent and be healed of all sexual immorality I have committed today”.
