- Featured The Book of Seven Divine Commandments (Hebrew)
Description: World-wide interest in the Seven Commandments for the Children of Noah (in Hebrew, the Sheva Mitzvot Bnei Noach) has grown exponentially over the last few decades. Until now, however, a clear guide for the practical application and observance of these precepts has been lacking.
Sefer Sheva Mitzvot HaShem ( The Book of Seven Divine Commandments ) Volumes I, II & III are the result of a historic project launched by Ask Noah International in 2005. Expertly compiled in Hebrew by Rabbi Moshe Weiner of Jerusalem and reviewed by prominent Torah scholars, the book examines the halachic details and foundations of the Seven Noahide Commandments. The volumes are written in the style and format of the classic Shulchan Aruch, the Code of Jewish Law. Rabbi Weiner s work successfully brings an important but neglected area of Torah to the forefront of rabbinic attention.
Volume I focuses on the Noahide commandments between man and G-d, and includes many chapters on the fundamentals of the Noahide faith, the prohibitions of idolatry and blasphemy, and the dietary prohibitions associated with causing unnecessary pain to living creatures. It also includes a scholarly preface by Rabbi Weiner which explains the halachic basis of Jewish outreach to Gentiles for the Sheva Mitzvot.
Volume II focuses on the Noahide commandments between man and his fellow man, and includes many chapters on the Noahide prohibitions of murder and harming, forbidden relations (including the topics of marriage and divorce), and theft.
The new Volume III (224 pages) focuses on the Noahide commandment between man and his fellow man that involves the establishment and administration of righteous Laws and Courts. It also includes and Appendix on the Torah Laws relating to a Ger Toshav - a Gentile resident citizen of the Holy Land of Israel, in the times of the holy temple and the future Messianic Era.
Sefer Sheva Mitzvot HaShem was submitted for review by the world-renowned rabbinic authority, Hagaon Rav Zalman Nechemiah Goldberg shlita, member of the Supreme Rabbinical Court of Israel. The set also enjoys approbations from the current Chief Rabbis of Israel, Rav Shlomo Moshe Amar and Rav Yona Metzger; Rav Yakov Y. Eliezrov, Head of the Rabbinical Court of Greater Jerusalem; Rav Gedalia Dov Schwartz, Av Beit Din for both the Chicago Rabbinical Council (CRC) and the Rabbinical Council of America (RCA); and Rav Jacob I. Schochet of Toronto, Canada.
