Letter by Rishon Lezion Chief Rabbi Yitzchak Yosef
13 Sivan 5774
June 11, 2014
To: The Righteous People of the Nations, Bnei Noach
Throughout the world
Shalom and Blessings, and hearty wishes for success:
In this brief note I want to express my recognition and my appreciation for your important decision to become closer to the Creator of the world, to accept the Word of G-d, and to observe the seven mitzvot of Bnei Noach. These commandments are the practical way to
improve the world, and in this way the blessing of the Holy One, Blessed be He, to our Patriarch Abraham will come true: “And all the families of the world will be blessed through you.” We are witness to the fulfillment of the words of the prophets, “And many nations will
go and say, let us rise up to the Mountain of G-d, to the House of the G-d of Jacob, and He will teach us His ways and we will go along His pathways. For the Torah will emanate from Zion and the Word of G-d from Jerusalem.”
I want to bless you that your important decision will spread throughout the entire world, and we will thus be involved in the fulfillment of the prophecy, as is written, “All the nations of the world will know that G-d is Elo-him,” and the entire world will be filled with the glory of G-d.
I also want to extend my blessings to Brit Olam – the Noahide World Center – which is active in these matters. I wish you wisdom and success in enhancing the Torah and exalting it. Let us hope and pray that we will have the merit to see His name spread throughout the entire world and that the final redemption will come soon, Amen.
With blessings of Torah,
Yitzchak Yosef, Rishon Lezion, Chief Rabbi of Israel
President of the Great Rabbinical Court
