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.

Project Oversight Committee
Though this Noahide Laws Study Project's research is being undertaken by the Yeshiva Pirchei Rabbinic Staff the oversight committee is pictured below with a partial biography on each.
Project Director-Rabbi Avraham Chaim Bloomenstiel studied in many of Israel’s preeminent academies of Torah study. He received his ordinations as a rabbi and dayan (adjudicator) from HaRav HaGaon Moshe Halberstam ztz’l (Eidah HaCharedis), Rav Zalman Nechemya Goldberg (former chief justice of the Rabbinical High Court of Jerusalem), Rav Meir Sirota (Eidah HaCharedis) and Rav Dan Channen (moreh hora’ah of Ramat Beit Shemesh).
He was certified as a shochet (kosher slaughterer) by HaRav HaGaon Nesanel Kostelitz and Rabbi Yechezkel Feit (Rosh HaShochtim of Empire Poultry). Rabbi Bloomenstiel learned safrus (scribal practice) in Israel and the United States. His ordinations and certifications as a scribe came from Rav Avraham Tzvi Wosner (Rav of Satmar, Monsey, NY), Rav Moshe Halberstam ztz’l (Eidah HaCharedis), and Rav Dovid Leib Greenfeld (Vaad Mishmeres Stam International). Rabbi Bloomenstiel is recognized as one of the United States’ leading experts on scribal laws, traditions, and practices. He is also the author of the Maayanos HaKesuvim, a multi-volume commentary on the laws of safrus, shechita, milah, and other sections of Shulchan Aruch, and is a contributing author on Jewish topics and religion for the Encyclopedia of Psychology and Religion. Most recently he authored an appendix on the laws of conversion for the book B’nei Avraham Ahuvecha: Gerim in Chassidic Thought.
HaRav Yitzchak Tzvi Oshinsky, a lifelong resident of Jerusalem, Israel is considered one of the shining young Prodigies in the City. He resides in Yerushalayim with his wife and three daughters.
HaRav HaGoan Brodie the Rosh HaYeshiva and head of The Chevron Yeshiva in Ge’ulah (the heart of Jerusalem), in his approbation to R’ Oshinsky’s recent publication on the laws of Mourning (Aveilus) has acclaimed R’ Oshinsky to be one of the great Torah Scholars in the City. His concentration coupled with his ability to clearly understand and explain the subject matter at hand has caused the Rav to be in demand by many nationally and now internationally as he has taken on the role of Chief Lecturer in the area of Aveilus (the laws of mourning) for the Shulchan Aruch Learning Project.
R’ Oshinsky, in addition to his duties at the Shulchan Aruch Project, is a judge in the Jerusalem Jewish Court as well as teaching at Mishkan HaTorah in Yerushalayim as well as conveying lectures to Kollels on Fridays. R’ Oshinsky learned to be a Dayan (judge) in Nishmat Israel in Bayit Vegan, Yerushalayim. He received his Semicha (Rabbinic Ordination) from the Chief Rabbinate of Israel entitling him to be the Rabbi of the City as well as a Dayan for the Chief Rabbinate. In addition the Rav received Semicha from HaRav HaGoan Yitzchak Koliz Z’tl, the Jerusalem Rav and from HaRav R’Nechmia Goldberg Shilta. In addition R’ Avraham Kohen the Rosh HaYeshiva of Nishmat Yisrael also granted Semicha to the Rav and so to from Mifahal HaShas.
R’ Oshinsky as well has authored a book on the Laws of Mourning as well as a book on topics of Money, Community. The Rav’s high level of academic Scholarship has led him to be involved with the examination system in the Rabbinate and thus his incredible innate ability to understand and convey such a difficult area of learning to us is a real privilege and one we expect many from around the world will take advantage of.
Rabbi Peretz Moncharsh was born and raised in Minneapolis, MN and learned in the Yeshivos of Philadelphia, Brisk- R Dovid, Mir and Kollel La’asukei Shmaytsa. He currently lives in Beitar and is a Moreh Horaah on both the Ashkenazi and Sefardi Batei Horaah as well as the Rosh Kollel of Kollel Shaarei Horaah. Rabbi Moncharsh received Semicha from R’ Zalman Nechemia Goldberg, R’ Yaakov Tufik (the Sefaradi Rav of Beitar) and the Rabbanut.
