The personal side of Dinim

Just so you know, throughout this article, I’ll be referring to the seven commandments as “7M.” If it’s not been stressed to you, then let me share with you a point of view. Remember, this is just my point of view. I’m not an authority or an expert. Again, I am not an authority or …

Are the Seven Commandments Religious or Secular? – Part 2

So Elisheva Barre, one of the voices who had a strong formative role in my learning of the Seven Commandments, chose to shove her head into my cogitations … And I’m glad she did. Now, have no doubt: just because I respect the woman quite highly, her work being very influential in my development in …

Are the Seven Commandments Religious or Secular?

Someone asked me whether the seven commandments were religious or secular. I was in a group so more than one person could respond. I chose to go with the dictionary definitions of “religious” and “secular” and drew the conclusion, again, that the seven commandments, the seven basic laws, were secular. Let me just show the …

The Shabbat given in the late 20th Century – the “universal shabbat”

A 7-Law-Keeping Gentile Still Doesn’t Keep The Holy Days

As we’re in the midst of the Jewish holy day season, a time when certain Gentiles feel inner stirrings about whether to keep the festivals commanded upon the Jews, I feel it’s fitting to publicize a comment I received in response to an old article I wrote about the subject. The original article was called …

The Golem of Straw that Katz built – AskNoah’s statement

So Katz published his article which can be found here. In that article, he put his own spin on an Torah ruling by Rema in such a way that he then inferred from it that AskNoah International (which had quoted from that ruling by Rema) is identifying all “Noahides” as “akum.” That false accusation by …

The Golem of Straw that Katz Built

It’s been a while since I wrote on this blog. I have a bit of time and an opportunity so I’ll just take an article that was shared and critique it. It’s an article called “The Modern Noahides of Noahism are Aku”m” written by rabbi David Katz. It can be found here. Or it should be better …

Honouring murderers (and robbers)

Written in a facebook post, by Robert Higgs. Although it only mentions Americans, it applies to politicians internationally. “Are you ever struck by the number of ultra-criminal individuals — people who have great amounts of blood on their hands (e.g., Henry Kissinger, Ed Meese, George H.
