A Social Contract for the Nations:
Torah Principles for a better world

Those who would serve the One God must help, each according to his or her ability, to purify the world from the current flood of heresy, immorality, bloodshed, robbery, corruption in government and courts of justice and falsehood in the media.
This will be achieved by our acceptance of God's Covenant with humankind to follow the Seven Universal Laws of the Torah, so people will join together and help one another to find the truth and to recognize God.
