Judaism's Branches and Noahides
Daniel2 Wrote:If an observant Noahide has friends or a parent who are Jewish but not observant, would he/she be held accountable for not telling them that they should be doing what they're obligated to do?


Daniel2 Wrote:Would being too scared to tell them because it might cause an argument or disagreement be an excuse?

Sure, but again, you don't have that as an obligation. On the other hand, if you can find some pleasant way to get your Jewish relative or friend to do even just one additional Jewish mitzvah (even just once), it is a great accomplishment.

If you see that it would cause anger and hurt feelings, it would be discouraged. But with patience and perhaps some light discussions leading up to it, you might see an opening for an opportunity, through Divine Providence. Then by all means, try not to pass up the opportunity.
