An International seminar on Noahide Laws recently took place in Fairfax, entitled ‘The Choice is Yours,’ with Rabbi Sholom Deitsch.
Centered on building universal solidarity and peace, the seminar took place at the Chabad of Northern Virginia, bringing together people from all faiths.
The goal is to spread the universality of the seven laws of Noah in the Washington, DC area.
The seminar focused on increasing international commitment to peace in our time.
“It is very important that each person, independent of his religious creed, race or political choices, makes sure that he/she is making a contribution, through his/her own behavior, to balance the world,” said Rabbi Yaakov Cohen of www.Noahide.org.
Non-Jews from different backgrounds such as Peruvian, Indonesian, and African–Americans, among others, came to learn about the Laws of Noah.
There were also Jewish people who attended to learn more about the Noahide laws.
The program was led by Rabbi Cohen, who spoke about Maimonides and played a film interview about people who adopted obvservance of the Noahide laws, accompanied by wisdom from prominent Rabbis.
The film also described how wonderful the world will be in the era of Moshiach. It will be the world of which we dream–world peace between man and his fellow, and in all of creation.
Other guest speakers were Rabbi Yehoishophot Oliver and Dr. Michael Schulman, who displayed Noahide books and assorted cards distributed by his organization, ‘Ask Noah International.’ Also on display were seven Noahide Laws magnets which are also good gifts for non-Jewish friends and bumper-stickers.
