"The Path of the Righteous Gentile" introduces the reader to the most ancient of all behavioral doctrines, the Seven Universal Laws. Given originally to Adam , then reaffirmed after the cessation of the floodwaters of Noah, the Seven Laws were part of the Divine Revelation at Mount Sinai. From that point forward, the doctrine became eternally binding on all mankind, and the Jewish people became charged with the duty of teaching it to the rest of the nations of the world. During the times when the Holy Temple stood in Jerusalem, members of the Gentile nations who observed the Seven Laws were permitted to dwell in the land of Israel, enter the Holy Temple, and offer sacrifices on the alter of G-d. Since the destruction of the Temple nearly two thousand years ago, knowledge of the Seven Laws of the children of Noah has been the exclusive province of Jewish scholars, recorded primarily in the Babylonian Talmud, Tractate Sanhedrin, and in the Mishnah Torah of Maimonides. During recent times, in acknowledgement of the bleak spiritual conditions of the entire world, many feel it is imperative that the G-d of Israel's precious gift to the non-Jew be taught to all who will listen and learn. "The Path of the Righteous Gentile" is an original treatise on the Seven Laws of the children of Noah. Within its pages the reader will find a clear and faithful rendering of these earliest teachings of G-d, a spiritual treasure which remains ever-new and dynamic and largely still unknown except to a few Jewish scholars.
