Judaism maintains that the righteous of all nations have a place in the world to come.This has been the majority rule since the days of the Talmud.Clearly, these are not the ideas of a people who think they are better than other nations.Because of our acceptance of Torah, Jews have a special status in the eyes of G-d, but we lose that special status when we abandon Torah.The Torah states that the children of such marriages would be lost to Judaism (Deut.7:3-4), and experience has shown the truth of this passage all too well.Here are 15 famous faces who are proudly black and Jewish.
While non-Jews are only obligated to obey the seven commandments given to Noah, Jews are responsible for fulfilling the 613 mitzvot in the Torah, thus G-d will punish Jews for doing things that would not be a sin for non-Jews.
According to traditional Judaism, G-d gave Noah and his family seven commandments to observe when he saved them from the flood.
These commandments, referred to as the Noahic or Noahide commandments, are inferred from Genesis Ch.
9, and are as follows: 1) to establish courts of justice; 2) not to commit blasphemy; 3) not to commit idolatry; 4) not to commit incest and adultery; 5) not to commit bloodshed; 6) not to commit robbery; and 7) not to eat flesh cut from a living animal.
These commandments are fairly simple and straightforward, and most of them are recognized by most of the world as sound moral principles.
I once received a message from a man who told me that many Jews do not like gentiles.
