After The Flood

Ever wonder what happened when Noah and his family exited the Ark after the Flood?

"To the world you might be one person, but to one person you just might be the world".
"The only thing necessary for evil to exist is for good people to do nothing."

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.

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.

FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

I see lots of references to “Torah” and “Jews” on your site.  Is Noahide Nations a Jewish outreach organization?
 
Noahide Nations was founded and is operated by gentiles who believe that the Torah is the Lord’s true, final, and definitive revelation to mankind.  We believe that the Torah reveals God’s will both to the Jewish people and to the Gentile Nations, giving each their own purpose and mission in His world.
 
Nevertheless, Noahide Nations consults with qualified, mainstream Orthodox Rabbis for information and guidance.  We also employ many Rabbi’s as teachers and writers for our websites and online classrooms.  Rav Lazer Brody, Director of Chut Shel Chessed Institutions in Israel provides regular support, endorsement, and spiritual guidance.  For halachic (Torah law) guidance we defer to HaRav HaGaon Avraham Chaim Bloomenstiel of Yeshivos Pirshei Shoshanim and Keter HaTorah (of which he serves as dayan, judge, and posek, decisor of Torah law).  Rav Bloomenstiel frequently consults with leading sages such as HaRav HaGaon Chaim Kanievsky on complicated questions pertaining to Noahide practice.

Is the Noahide faith a new religion?
 
No – Noahism is actually the oldest religious faith in history!  Consider this: what was the faith of Adam, the first man? What about Noah and his family?  They were not Jews nor were they idolaters – they were pure monotheists who believed in God and in the expectations that he communicated to man through Adam and Noah.  The Tosefta, Talmud, Midrash, and a number of other ancient writings refer to the Noahide faith and the Seven Noahide Laws.  Despite its ancient heritage, the Noahide faith suffered near extinction over the past 1500 years since the ascendency of Christianity.  In the past 100 years, however, Noahism has experienced a tremendous revival.  For more information on Noahide history and belief, see What Is Noahism? and our Articles page.
 
Do Noahides believe in Jesus? What about the New Testament and the Gospels?
 
Noahides believe that the Lord of the Torah (“Old Testament”) is the Creator and One True God.  We also believe that the Torah, Prophets, and Writings of the Hebrew scriptures (the Tanakh) represent God’s revealed will.  Noahides do not believe in Jesus, neither as a divine nor prophetic figure.   We do not accept the New Testament or Gospels as representative of God’s revealed will.
 
Do Noahides keep Jewish customs and religious practices?
 
Since Noahides drink from the same spiritual well as Jews, the Holy Torah, it is inevitable that their beliefs will share some common elements and expressions.  However, the Noahide and Jewish faiths are two entirely different paths.  Therefore, these common elements often take on different meanings.  For example, both Jews and Noahides recognize the importance of the Seventh Day.  However, it means different things to Noahides and Jews.  For Jews, it is a day of highly ritualized rest and abstention of certain labors as a sign of the Jewish covenant.  For Noahides, it is day of acknowledgment, recognition, and reconnection with God as the creator of the world.  Another example is the holiday of Sukkot (Feast of Tabernacles).  For Jews, Sukkot celebrates God’s having provided for the Jews during their sojourn in the desert.  For Noahides, Sukkot is a period of atonement.

Do Noahides believe in the Talmud?
 
Yes. To describe it simply, the Talmud is the most complete commentary on the relationship between Man, God, and the Torah ever compiled.  In its sixty-three volumes, it explores every possible element of human and divine relationships as well as possible interpretations of the Torah.  It is virtually impossible to come to any practical understanding of the Torah without the detailed discussions of the Talmud.  However, the Talmud is a much maligned, slandered, and misunderstood book.  As an encyclopedia of detailed discussions on the Torah, there is a lot of material therein that can be taken out of context, misquoted, and creatively misrepresented for dishonest motives.
 
But, doesn’t the Talmud speak disparagingly about gentiles!?!
 
Yes – but the Talmud is even harsher in its treatment of Jews!  The Talmud discusses the best and worse of all humanity and human potential.  It praises Jews who observe the Torah and lambasts those who sin.  So too, it is harsh on non-Jewish idolaters, yet it greatly praises gentiles who are righteous and devoted to the Lord.
 
How can I learn more about the Noahide Laws?
 
You have come to the right place for that!  We offer a number of learning and study programs in our Academy of Shem online classroom.  See also our collection of recordings and online articles.
