Torah for the Nations

Torah for the Nations: Judaism 101

Ongoing course on the basics of Torah faith and practice for the burgeoning numbers across Africa, Asia and many other places throughout the world who seek reliable information about authentic Judaism in order to make informed choices about their pathway as Jews or Noahides in the face of widespread confusion and disinformation.

JUDAISM 101 is not a Jewish conversion course but may serve as a guide for students, teachers, community leaders, prospective converts, returnees to the Torah and people of all faiths and backgrounds who seek true understanding of the mission of the People of Israel.

Elijah the Prophet said: I call heaven and earth to witness for me, whether it is a Jew or a gentile, a man or a woman, a slave or a maid-servant, everything depends on the person's deeds: according to what the person does, so Holy Spirit rests upon them."
(Tanna d'vei Eliyahu 9:1)
