Guide For The Noahide – Ep 2: An Overview of Jewish Literature


What are all these texts that make up the Oral Tradition and how do they relate to each other? How can we Noahides use these texts to learn our obligations?

This week we continue studying “Guide For The Noahide” from page ii of the Author’s Preface.

Grab your book as we continue our reading and discussion of the Author’s Preface at page ii in the book Guide For The Noahide. Join us each week for about an hour per episode as we learn and discuss the details of the Seven Laws.

In this episode we talk about all the various texts that make up the Oral Tradition, how they fit together with each other, and the history and circumstances under which they were developed. We talk about how all these texts relate to each other and in what way Noahides should relate to these texts. We don’t get into as much depth as we would’ve liked in the time frame BUT if you have questions or need clarification, do post them in the comments so we can continue the discussion that way.

As serious and dedicated Noahides, we know it is incumbent upon us to learn the details of the Sheva Mitswoth as required by HaShem our God. We’ll be using the book Guide For The Noahide as a basis for learning and delving into the details of the Seven Noahide Laws, character development, and wise practices. Our format is a read-discuss format, which means we read one paragraph then stop and discuss it, read another paragraph then stop and discuss it, etc. We’ll be able to cover several paragraphs in each weekly episode and we encourage anyone interested in learning Noahide halachah to study with us. Take notes and post your questions or comments in the video so we can continue having an off-video discussion.

We would like to thank the author, Rabbi Michael Shlomo Bar-Ron, as well as the publisher, Lightcatcher Books, for kindly giving us permission to use Guide For The Noahide for this project.
