7 Commandments for Gentiles
Terrible events that we can observe recently have changed the modern world for the worse. Therefore, every good deed can unlock countless blessings and improve the lives of mankind. That is why G-d gave humanity the seven commandments of Noah.The Lubavitcher Rebbe Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson King Moshiach, the prophet and greatest Jewish leader of all time, announced in 1991 that we are entering the Messianic era, and every good deed done now will unlock countless blessings and infinite goodness.

Yes, by following the seven principles of life, you can really help create a new world, a world without war, misery, injustice, cruelty and even disease. You can help make the world the paradise it was when G-d created it.


1. Prohibition of idolatry



Every person must believe in the existence of the one and only one creator of the World. He created the universe and every person, and knows all our actions and thoughts. He watches everyone and judges each person for their actions. He is one and only to Him we should worship and pray.

The practical meaning of this commandment is as follows: the complete prohibition of worshiping or praying to idols, as well as believing in another god and in other entities or powers.

2. Prohibition of blasphemy



Every person must respect G-d, who created the universe and also gave him life. The practical meaning of this commandment consists in the prohibition of swearing at God, cursing Him or calling Him by a disrespectful name.

3. Prohibition of murder



Man is created in the image of God. Human life is a sacred gift that no one has the right to take away from it. Man should respect and encourage the continuation of humanity. He who kills a soul is considered to have killed the entire universe and harmed the Creator. The practical meaning of this commandment is that it is forbidden to kill any person, including the fetus in the mother's womb.

4. Prohibition of theft



G-d has given every person the right to own money or property, and no one has the right to take it away from them. This also includes the prohibition of withholding payment, the prohibition of abducting a young or old person. The practical meaning of this commandment is the strict prohibition of theft, robbery, or any taking of property by force, fraud, or any other unlawful means. Being sensitive to another person's money or property also inspires us to do good deeds.

5. Prohibition of adultery



G-d created man and woman as one and only then separated them into two separate entities that need each other to achieve completeness. Therefore, married life and the laws related to it are the basis of the existence of humanity and the fullness of the family and community. It is necessary to adhere to the values ​​of modesty and prudence in matters of marital relations.

The practical meaning of this commandment consists in the prohibition of incest and adultery, as well as the prohibition of sexual relations between relatives of the first degree, between a married woman and another man, between two men or with animals.

6. Prohibition of eating a body part cut off from a living being



G-d created living things in the world, and every person should respect their existence. Unlike flora, which has the ability to regenerate, damage to an animal is irreversible. Although the Torah does not prohibit the consumption of meat, it does set strict restrictions on human use of animals. This commandment obliges us not to be indifferent even to the suffering of an animal, and also reinforces our duty to be aware of another person's grief, not to offend him and help him get out of stress. The practical meaning of this commandment is the prohibition of eating a limb or tearing out a limb taken from an animal while it is still alive.

7. Appointment of judges



In order that all the foregoing laws may be duly observed, courts of justice shall be established in every city, with judges to decide upon these commandments, and to have power to punish those who violate them. Anyone will be able to go to these appointed judges and submit to their sentence.

The Sages teach that when a Gentile keeps these commandments because they are good and reasonable, he is considered wise. However, if he keeps them, as G-d commanded Moshe (Moses) on Mount Sinai, he is considered a saint and earns eternal life in the world to come with a spiritual reward comparable to that of the Jewish high priest.


Furthermore, when man fulfills his potential, all of creation is nurtured and elevated to fulfill its purpose. It makes the world a beautiful place where G-d will decide to reveal himself very, very soon.
