    Incredibly, many people today are not aware of what Judaism has to say about what G-d expects of non-Jews. Torah Law as a whole applies to the Jewish people, but what about the rest of humanity? hasidicuniversity.org is a Web site in progress to present the religious obligations of non-Jews, according to Judaism. It's a big project, and the details are still being worked out. I'd be interested in any feedback or comments for discussion.

    Don't be telling me what to worship nor what obligations you think I have and I will be kind enough to offer you the same courtesy.

    Why would it seem incredible that non-Jews aren't aware of what Judeaism expects of them?

    I went to the site, but found nothing on that topic to comment on.

    Pretty nice web design, though, if that helps.

    Simply because Judaism as such is over 3300 years old, and the non-Jewish covenant of the Noahide Laws is much older than that. However, I suppose since the enemies of Israel have done everything in their power to make sure the message of Judaism does not reach the non-Jewish public, and most Jewish leaders in modern times have been lax in teaching non-Jews, perhaps it isn't so incredible.

    Sorry for the confusion. I meant to comment here in this message board.

    It isn't my site, but I'm sure the Webmaster would appreciate knowing.

    I don't care if they hate gentiles so long as they don't steal our planes and fly them into the Pentagon. To each his own.

    Agreed--the only place where jewish hatred seems to get violent is in the mideast but that of course is all justifiable hate.
