When people who are outside of holiness approach and embrace holiness, this may include Ba’alei Teshuva (Jews returning to their faith), converts (non-Jews becoming Jews), or Bnei Noach (non-Jews turning to the G-d of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob). All of these individuals hold a sacred reverence and fear of G-d. Honor is then elevated to its root, which is sacred awe, and this, in turn, brings peace to the world.
Peace is what we need: peace, justice, and fairness. It is our responsibility, both for Jews and righteous non-Jews, to actively and productively contribute to promoting this reverence and fear of G-d. It is essential that the world becomes acquainted with the 7 Noahide Commandments and understands who G-d is and what He expects from the people to whom He grants life every day.
Let us integrate the 7 Noahide Commandments into our lives and society:
- The prohibition of idolatry: Recognize that there is only one G-d and do not worship idols.
- The prohibition of blasmphemy: Speak respectfully about G-d and sacred matters.
- The prohibition of murder and injury: Respect life and protect it.
- The prohibition of forbidden relations: Maintain sexual purity and respect for marriage.
- The prohibition of theft: Respect the property of others.
- Establisment of Laws and Courts: Practice honesty and fairness in all your actions.
- The prohibition of eating meat that was separated from a living animal: Treat all living beings with kindness and compassion.
By adhering to these Noahide Commandments and spreading knowledge of G-d’s expectations, we can contribute to a world where reverence and fear of G-d prevail and peace is achieved for everyone.
