Description & History

 

The Jewish Institute for Global Awareness (JIFGA) teaches

that by understanding, internalizing and following a set of

Divinely-ordained moral imperatives and universal ethics

known as the Seven Noahide Laws, the world can produce

more just societies, which are better able to receive and

retain G-d’s Presence.  We seek to inspire our fellow

human beings, because we are all descendants of Noah

who, together with his family, is described in the Hebrew

Bible as the survivor of The Flood and who thus became

the ancestor of all of humanity.  However,  not only do we

seek to inspire everyone who follows the Abrahamic

religions (Jews, Christians, and Muslims) to follow these

Noahide laws but also those of every race, color, or creed.

 

Given to us by G-d at the dawn of history, (as recounted in

the book of Genesis and documented in the Talmud,

Sanhedrin 56a-b -- the Oral Law), these seven principles,

if followed, permit us to establish a harmonious world in

which diverse peoples can live together peacefully.
