    First Covenant spirituality and observance

    In ancient times the Children of Israel called them "God-fearers." In modern times, after the Holocaust and destruction of the Jews in Europe, Israel calls the heroic souls who tried to save their fellows from the Nazis' genocide "righteous gentiles." The righteous men and women of every nation, according to the Torah, are blessed. Today, those who consciously try to keep the First or Universal Covenant are frequently called Noahides.







    Biblical studies/Torah studies

    Suppose you come from the vast majority of humankind, the more than 99.75 percent of humanity which isn't Jewish. In Hebrew thinking, you're a gentile, a Noahide, one of the non-Hebrew descendants of Noah. One who studies the First Covenant sincerely, in order to do God's will, receives infinite blessing.
