Ask the Rabbi - Basic Concepts

Fully Halachic Sabbath Keeping

Will a Noahide who observes a fully halachic Shabbat be punished by HaShem? I have personally been exposed to such an opinion which is based on b. Sanhedrin 58b; “ a heathen who keeps a day of rest deserves death”. I would appreciate your insight on this and how Sanhedrin 58b relates to Noahide Sabbath keeping.

Along the same lines I would also appreciate your insights on Maimonides, Misneh Torah, Laws of Kings and their Wars, Chapter 10, Halacha 9. How is the Rambam to be understood here in relation to gentiles keeping the Sabbath?

Your thoughts are much appreciated!

Noahide World Center

In response to the spiritual and value-driven demand for the word of God to be disseminated by the nation of Israel to all of mankind, we have established “Brit Olam – the Noahide World Center” in Jerusalem. We are in constant contact with many people all over the world who have a strong desire to learn the words of God.
