Growing in Observance of the Noahide Path
Shalom The reverand rabbis and Dr. Schulman
I want to know, as a Noahide what is the best thing to be done by a Noahide, as to prayers and activites and the exact date which it begins. Thank you very much.
Shalom Oceanoah,

One can discuss good things to be done by a Noahide in general;  for that there are general principles and guidelines. But there are also the best things to be done by you personally, at your own present level. If possible, it is best if you can chart a program for your personal development as an observant Noahide with advice from a mentor (a "mashpia") who can objectively help you to put your own situation into the proper perspective.

The exact date on which this should begin is today. As the Sage Hillel taught (Ethics of the Fathers, 1:14): "If I am not for myself, who is for me? And if I am only for myself, what am I? And if not now, when?"

For information on prayer, and understanding and observance of the Noahide Code, there are two publications that will give you specific and highly reliable guidelines:

"The Divine Code," by Rabbi Moshe Weiner (pub. Ask Noah International):

"Prayers, Blessings, Principles of Faith, and Divine Service for Noahides," by Rabbi Moshe Weiner and Rabbi J. Immanuel Schochet (pub. Ask Noah International):

Also, here are several pages on the web site which outline a solid general approach and a Torah-based philosophy to becoming a properly focused observant Noahide:

FAQs about Noahide Prayer"
I wonder, what shall i do to accept following the Seven Commandments if i want to become more observant?
The proper path is to learn the correct details and foundations of the Noahide Code, and make a commitment to try your best to observe them. There are two excellent sources for learning about the Noahide Code:

1) In print (English): the book "The Divine Code," Volume I, which can be ordered on-line

2) On the web site

Q&A Forum:
I just wonder: is there any books telling how to live a righteous every day-life? About what to do in different situations, what to not talk about, how to dress proper, what to not read or listen to, what about TV, radio and iternet and so on. I just know there is books about the seven commandments, but i want more practical information, simply, information to live the daily life without sin. There is too much i have to just guess what to do about...
