The Divine Code: The Guide to Observing G-d's Will for Mankind, Revealed from Mount Sinai in the Torah of Moses
World-wide interest in the Seven Commandments for the Children of Noah (all non-Jews) is growing rapidly, and great numbers of people around the world have already committed themselves to observe these commandments. However, until the publication of this landmark volume, a comprehensive, clear, and expertly researched English-language guide for observance and study of these Divine precepts has been lacking. The Divine Code, Volume I, is the result of an historic project by Ask Noah International. Originally compiled in two Hebrew volumes by Rabbi Moshe Weiner and endorsed by prominent Torah scholars, including a Chief Rabbi of Israel, it examines the Torah-law foundations and details of the Noahide precepts. Unique among the previous popular overviews of the subject, this authoritative text is footnoted with extensively researched Talmudic and post-Talmudic sources, and supplied with additional explanations and enlightening Editor's Notes throughout. It identifies and applies the fundamental principles by which the practical requirements for righteous living are determined for pious non-Jews.
This new expanded edition of Volume I encompasses the Seven Noahide Commandments and their foundational principles and offshoots. It contains seven parts, with contributed introductions by:
- Rabbi J. Immanuel Schochet o.b.m., a leading Canadian Rabbi and author of many popular books on Torah-based spirituality and philosophy;
- Joe M. Regenstein, Ph.D., a leading expert on guidelines in the meat industry for improved animal welfare;
- Arthur A. Goldberg, J.D., B.C.P.C., C.R.S., author of Light in the Closet and Co-director of JONAH and the Jonah Institute of Gender Affirmation;
- Michael Schulman, Ph.D., editor of the book and Executive Director of Ask Noah International and asknoah.org;
- Rabbi Moshe Weiner, author of Sheva Mitzvot HaShem (Seven Divine Commandments; see the Rabbinical reviews quoted here), for which this book is the authorized translation.
This book is in seven parts:
- The Introduction explains the Torah basis for the Noahide Code, and for outreach to non-Jews regarding this Divinely ordained righteous path.
- Part I covers principles of the Torah-based monotheistic faith, the Divine rewards that non-Jews may earn by observing of the Noahide Code, and practical guides to subjects of primary importance in daily life - Torah study, daily prayers, moral imperatives, and returning to the righteous path.
- Parts II-IV cover the prohibitions of idolatry and blasphemy, and the prohibitions associated with causing unnecessary pain to living creatures.
- Parts V-VII cover the prohibitions of murder and injury, forbidden sexual relations, and theft.
Volume II (in preparation) will include additional topics related to the prohibition of theft, and Part VIII on the universal societal obligation to establish laws and courts.

About the Author:

Rabbi Moshe Weiner of Jerusalem is a highly accomplished Torah scholar, who has dedicated years of work to the compilation and explanation of the authentic Torah-based Noahide Code, and the guiding principles for modern-day observance of the righteous path for pious Gentiles. In this work (in the original Hebrew, titled Sheva Mitzvot HaShem - Seven Divine Commandments), he received expert scholarly advice and primary approbation from the renowned Torah authority, Rabbi Zalman Nehemiah Goldberg of Jerusalem, who added his own footnote material throughout. Rabbi Weiner was also fully involved in the preparation of the entire text of the English translation, The Divine Code.

Review:

I saw the good book, well-written and aptly titled Sheva Mitzvot HaShem, compiled and authored by the Rabbi and great scholar, Rabbi Moshe Weiner, may he live for many long and good days.
I have also seen the immense work that was required to explain all the matters of the Seven Commandments for the Children of Noah, and this was done very well, written in simple, clear language, so that the reader can easily comprehend it.
I bless him that G-d should send him success in all his endeavors, to continue in his holy work, and to author and publish more works in excellent physical health.
And may it be G-d's will that he see blessing in the work of his hands, that he has prepared for the sake of G-d, blessed be He.
Waiting for G-d's salvation and mercy,
Shlomo Moshe Amar
Chief Rabbi of Israel --Letter from Chief Sephardic Rabbi of Israel, Rabbi Moshe Amar, July 9, '08.

Behold, I am compelled to speak in praise of the great living scholar, the Rabbi Ha'Ga'on, Rabbi Moshe Weiner (may he live for many long and good days), and in praise of his book, a Shulchan Aruch L'Bnei Noach, which is an elucidation of the Torah precepts of the Seven Commandments for the Children of Noah. He truly showed greatness in his clear explanations and Torah-law rulings in matters that were not discussed at length or elucidated in breadth in the works of the Rabbinical authorities. Therefore I give my appreciation to the above Rabbi who put out such a book into the world. And for the love of the holy words, I have added comments in a few places. Let us pray to G-d that the earth will be as filled with knowledge of G-d as water covering the sea bed [Isaiah 11:9], and all will form a single band to carry out the will of G-d, blessed be He. Amen.
Rabbi Zalman Nehemiah Goldberg
Supreme Rabbinical Court of Israel --Letter from Rabbi Zalman Nehemiah Goldberg, Nov. 23, '07

I was honored to peruse and learn his compilation titled Sheva Mitzvot HaShem; I was deeply impressed by the copious citations in the book, which display a great erudition in the Talmud and its commentaries. The detailed development of issues in the material reflects on the author's tremendous effort to solve them. May G-d strengthen him in his Torah studies and in continuing his holy work. --Letter from Rabbi Gedaliah Dov Schwartz, Head of the Rabbinical Courts, Rabbinical Council of America and Chicago Rabbinical Council, Dec. 31, '07
