Entries in Noachide (4)
While doing mivtzaim, it happens sometimes that in my outreach to Jews, I encounter non-Jews. I usually just give them a sheva mitzvos card with a picture of the Rebbe. Once in a while, a non-Jew will enter into a discussion about faith, the seven mitzvos, Moshiach, etc. I have met smart non-Jews who have despaired of what their religion has to offer and are looking for an alternative. I have also met those who choose to eat kosher and “observe” Shabbos even though they are not Jewish. I respond to each one according to the circumstances and the question they pose. I usually explain that in Judaism we are not interested in enlisting new candidates and that in their current status they are obligated to observe the Seven Noachide Laws.
