Shalom and greetings to our friends, Noahides all over the world.
There is exciting news in the world! During December 2013, I (Rabbi Oury Cherki) went with Rabbi Efraim Choban, the director of Brit Olam – the Noahide World Center – on an action-packed visit to France and Holland. We can report on great progress in the subject of Bnei Noach in these countries and possibly in other countries as well.
One of the important elements that we saw during our trip is that more and more Noahides have decided to gather together in organized independent groups and not to depend any more exclusively on the Noahide World Center for all their needs.
It is very important for Noahides to develop a true sense of legitimacy and independence. In France, the organization that will soon be established sees itself as obligated to mend their country’s society as a whole. As Frenchmen, they want to have an influence on making laws and on cultural processes among their neighbors and friends. In short, the Noahides are about to become activists instead of maintaining their former passive role.
I hereby call on all the Noahides in the world who feel that they are capable of doing so within each and every country or within a single continent – to establish legally recognized enterprises and non-profit organizations with a membership of Bnei Noach. Let them begin a program of advocacy with respect to the outside world, in the press and on the internet, by giving their official positions about what is going on in their countries. In this way they will become a significant factor whose opinions will be heard, they will become known, and they will be able to play an active role in sanctifying the holy name of the Creator throughout the world.
Have courage and take bold steps!
We send our blessings to you from Jerusalem, the heart of the world!
Rabbi Oury Cherki, Chairman, Brit Olam – the Noahide World Center
