Bnei Noach: The Path of the Righteous Gentile

The websites found below are not about Judaism per se, but rather about what is called “The Path of the Righteous Gentile”. Judaism does not have a concept whereby non-Jews are automatically cursed. While non-Jews are certainly welcome to convert to Judaism, the Jewish view is that Hashem gave Noah 7 basic laws to govern human behavior, and that by following those 7 laws, a Gentile is made “Righteous”. The seven laws are:

  • Do not engage in idolatry
  • Do not curse God
  • Honor the institution of marriage between husband and wife
  • Do not murder
  • Do not steal
  • Do not inflict needless pain, even on an animal
  • Establish a system of justice to enforce the rest of the laws
