Sefer Sheva Mitzvot HaShem: Volume 2
The Book of Seven Divine Commandments
by Rabbi Moshe Weiner
Volume 2 covers the prohibitions of unlawful taking of human life and causing of injury, illicit relations, and theft.
World-wide interest in the Seven Commandments for the Children of Noah (in Hebrew, the Sheva Mitzvot Bnei Noach) has grown exponentially over the last few decades, and a great number of Gentiles have already committed themselves to their Torah-prescribed observance. Until now, however, a clear guide for the practical application and observance of these precepts has been lacking.
Sefer Sheva Mitzvot HaShem (“The Book of Seven Divine Commandments”) – Volumes I and II is the result of a historic project launched by Ask Noah International three years ago. Expertly compiled in Hebrew by Rabbi Moshe Weiner of Jerusalem and reviewed by prominent Torah scholars, the book examines the halachic details and foundations of the Seven Noahide Commandments. The volumes are written in the style and format of the classic Shulchan Aruch, the Code of Jewish Law by Rabbi Yosef Caro (the “Beit Yosef"). Rabbi Weiner’s work successfully brings an important but neglected area of Torah to the forefront of rabbinic attention.
Sefer Sheva Mitzvot HaShem was submitted for review by the world-renowned rabbinic authority, Haga’on Rav Zalman Nechemiah Goldberg shlit”a, member of the Supreme Rabbinical Court of Israel, who examined the full text in detail, added comments in many of the footnotes, and granted his approbation. The sefer also enjoys approbations from Rav Yakov Y. Eliezrov, Head of the Rabbinical Court of Greater Jerusalem, Rav Gedalia Dov Schwartz, Av Beit Din for both the Chicago Rabbinical Council (CRC) and the Rabbinical Council of America (RCA), and Rav Jacob I. Schochet of Toronto, Canada.
