Course 2: The Authentic Universal Relegion
This course is for those who want to learn in more depth about the religious parameters within the Noahide Code Divine guidelines for life. This will be presented based on the Torah laws compiled by Maimonides (Rambam) in Mishneh Torah. We will explain how a human being's obligation to observe the Noahide Code begins with acceptance of the essential principles of faith. Because the Noahide Code is only a part of the Torah's commandments, most of which are for the Jewish people, we will discuss the criteria for what a human being is either required, permitted, forbidden or discouraged, beyond his specific universal code. Examples will be brought about the Jewish commandments which are obligatory as fundamental principles for human beings due to their logical necessity (such as honoring parents, giving charity and doing acts of kindness), or optional for the sake of their practical benefits (such formal marriage, and marital relations for the sake of childbearing), and how these differ for Noahides in a small or large way.
In summary, this course teaches the fundamentals of the religious parameters of belief and practice for all human beings ( who are not Jewish ) according to the Torah tradition. You will also understand the special permission to observe Jewish commandments that are logically obligated or have a practical benefit, beyond the 7 Universal Commandments, with major practical examples.
