  • Are Noahides similar to "Jews for Jesus"?

  • I've never really applied the term to myself but reading your question I realize that I am Bene Noach. I am Catholic, but I am also learning Hebrew, going to classes at the JCC to learn more about Judaism, and have a great respect for the laws, which are also incorporated into my Catholic experience. I feel like my experience of Jewish tradition enriches and enhances my understanding of Christ. It's been a wonderful spiritual journey for me.

  • rkoloms ... technically anyone who believes in the ten commandments is a noahide I think.

  • No not jews for Jesus, They follow the 7 Laws of Naoh and Use Torah for guidance.

  • Interesting; I have never heard of Noahides (we are Jewish).
    One of the moms in the Jewish Moms group (Cafemom group number one) has a Torah learning group. I think her name is Devorah, but I am not positive. If you are in Chicago, I can give you contact information for a couple of different groups for women who want to learn Torah together.

  • It is interesting, they are gentiles, not subject to the additional 613 Jewish commandments.

  • Here are the basics. the 7 laws are not all the same as the 10 commandments.


    I am the owner of Jewish Moms. You are welcome to come and ask questions if you would like. I'm in the middle of bar mitzvah madness but should be around after Sunday (awake is another story.) Just mention that you are Noahide on the application.
