We have been reluctant to offer links. But these links - in no particular order - all offer good things:
Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Wikipedia features several articles on the Universal Covenant, Noahism, etc., - and on what at least one writer calls "Noahidism." Wikipedia is a massive reader-written encyclopedia, larger than the Encyclopaedia Britannica and very dynamic: entries are always subject to change - depending, sometimes, on the mere caprice of some guy somewhere. Wikipedia is certainly not "the final authority," but it's usually pretty good. See, for example:
What if Moses had Facebook?, courtesy of aish.com. New, as of April 10, 2011, 6 Nissan 5771, just about a week before the great spring holiday, Pesach - Passover 5771. Fun little clip just like the Passover holiday and, in fact, Judaism in general: history raised to religion and religious truths.
http://torahanytime.com, "G-d's Reason for the Internet." Torah video lectures from more than 350 speakers - all free. More than 10,000 videos available. A rich, remarkable site
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/7LawsOfNoah/join Noahide Digest, brought to you courtesy of the same nice lady in Toronto, Mrs. Tsila K., who founded the Facebook group above. Tsila finds all sorts of interesting things - things of special interest to Noahides, including the dates and times of holidays, all sorts of cool YouTube videos, and, for instance, our Covenant Connection newsletters - and sends them via links coming to your email inbox.
http://www.torah.org A very extensive Torah-outreach site including a "Jewish Answers" feature. Our three directors, Rabbi Michael Katz, Rev. Jack Saunders, and Michael Dallen, all occasionally take visitors' and students' questions in an "Ask the Rabbi" format. Mainstream Orthodox Judaism, including the "yeshivish" and the "modern."
http://www.myspace.com/bnai_noah Our own Jack Saunders' personal MySpace site. The only place, currently, to get quite a few of our interviews, videos, and lectures. This goes back some ways, incidentally: also see Jack Saunders and Michael Dallen on Facebook. See below:
http://www.facebook.com/topic.php?uid=2390502958&topic=8668&ref=mf The First Covenant Foundation's very own Facebook site, with blog and maybe someday more.
http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=16873400509&ref=ts Virtual Bnai Noah/ Noahide Community facebook group. An interface for networking - it "may work to unify and possibly build up a physical Noahide Community in your area." The founder of this group - Tsila, a nice Jewish lady in Toronto - persuaded us to put up this links page.
http://www.lamikdash.com Resources on the Har HaBayit in Jerusalem, Israel/literally, "The Mountain" (Mount Mariah) "of the House", also known as the Temple Mount - the once and future home of the Holy Temple of HaShem in Jerusalem, Solomon's and Isaiah's "House of Prayer for All Peoples"
http://www.Kcholmim.org "K'Cholmim" means, 'As dreamers'. Jewish millenial website. "When the salvation of HaShem arrives we will be as dreamers..."
http://www.theisraelproject.org The Israel Project is an international, non-governmental, non-profit organization devoted to educating the press and public about Israel while promoting "security, freedom and peace." Pretty solid stuff.
http://www.JewishIsrael.org The website of Manhigut Yehudit - literally, "Jewish leadership," a Hebrew political party in Israel, co-founded by Shmuel Sackett, international director, and Moshe Feiglin, chairman. Mr. Feiglin may someday become the prime minister of Israel. We believe that he and his party are much more sensible and tolerant than they generally get credit for being. We present this link to them in order to help set the record straight. Also, incidentally, we think well of their program.
http://www.mesora.org Torah - "the Tradition." An extensive, very learned "modern Orthodox" site. Some of our contributors are members and directors.
http://www.israelnationalnews.com/ Arutz Sheva/"Channel Seven": a major online up-to-the-minute newspaper, or newsmagazine, based in Israel. Most of the leading media outlets in Israel are very left-wing politically, and often religiously - they routinely promote appeasing Israel's Arab enemies, appear eager to renounce the Jewish people's responsibilities and privileges as the People of Israel, and often speak ill of various tenets of Judaism. Arutz Sheva, this site, is a very welcome corrective to all that; it comes from the right. It often is right.
http://academyofshem.com/ Alan W. Cecil's site - author of The Noahide Code: a guide to the perplexed Christian. This erudite little book is packed with historical information on the origins of Christianity. Its analysis of Christianity's theology and development is interesting, and often persuasive, but most Christians will find it off-putting. We definitely like Alan's appreciation of Rainbow Covenant: "Insightful and often amusing, this is the best book available about the Seven Laws of Noah."
http://unitedisrael.org Website of United Israel World Union, a tight-knit organization originally founded by David Horowitz (1903-2002) of New York. Its chief objective, in its own words, is and has been "to represent a universal version of the Hebraic faith to the non-Jewish world, based primarily on the Hebrew Bible, as well as provide a meeting place for Jews with non-Jews."
http://www.afsi.org Americans for a Safe Israel - news from Israel and the world of Islam, culture wars and geo-politics, including a great deal of news that you probably haven't seen elsewhere, with a mostly wonderfully sane but occasionally - they have lapses - oddly neo-conservative slant. Frequently excellent, but we could do without the constant denunciations of President Obama and Binyamin Netanyahu (Israel Prime Minister). Our own Michael Dallen is a longtime member and a former member of AFSI's National Council.
http://www.tfdixie.com Torah for Dixie
http://www.outreachjudaism.org even with this name, this also addresses a Jewish audience. Judaism doesn't "reach out" to try to make non-Jews Jewish. Non-Jews who convert to Judaism are trying to do more than God asks of them. But anyone can, and everyone should, become a co-religionist of Israel - a believer in HaShem ("the Name," or God), a member of the same community of faith.
http://7lawsofnoah.blogspot.com News and views from Canada
http://www. schuellerhouse.com a "Netzarim" site - you can read about the doctrine of the Netzarim - which is not a doctrine that we endorse, but we don't fret about it endlessly, either - on this site, along with a huge amount of other material. Webmaster: an old friend of ours, a thoughtful and devoted Noahide, Kenneth Guentert.
http://www.half-jewish.org (beta-gershom.org; a remarkably rich, extensive website exploring topics of particular interest to men and women coming from "partly Jewish" families.
http://malecircumcision.org/ Moses, Isaiah, and other prophets told of a time when at least some aspects of the wisdom and holiness even of the Torah's "statutes," the laws of the Torah that don't "make sense" logically - such as the laws of kosher food, say, or the law requiring the circumcision (cutting of the penile foreskin) of every Hebrew boy, one week and a day after birth - would become clear even to multitudes of non-Jews. This site, sponsored by the World Health Organization (W.H.O.), major medical schools and others, discusses circumcision.
http://www.arkwoodcaskets.com/story.html a commercial site, offering "kosher" burial caskets, links to other "Green Burial Movement" sites, and general "ashes to ashes, dust to dust" information about kosher - every kosher burial is "green" and non-polluting (besides being holy, dignified, traditional, etc. - funerals and final services. The Torah teaches that burial in the earth, after death, is a sacrament, or holy act: a last act of atonement.
http://www.asknoah.org The Lubavitcher chasidim who run this site refuse to acknowledge our existence - they don't support what's not theirs - or even that of the book Rainbow Covenant. On top of that, we find their approach to the Noahide Covenant - see how their teachings support the massive idiocy of Protocols of the Elders of Zion, per our Covenant Connection newsletter - extremely embarrassing. Furthermore, we may as well say it: we also seriously dislike and oppose their emphasis on the mysticism and kabbala, the Zohar and the whole "heart-fools-the-mind" teachings of "chassidus"/the way of the "pious ones," the chasidic sectarians among the Jewish People. That is, we object to all this because it is not a legitimate field of study for Noahides - there are so many more and better things for Noahides to know about Israel and Torah.... We object to what AskNoah does in this respect and we object to all the "Noahide" groups and teachers who insist on infusing their teachings with kabbalistic mysticism. So... with AskNoah and all 'em: take the good, if you can find it; ignore the bad.
http://www.saveisrael.com/ Wonderful articles, especially those by Dr. Israel Eldad, a beautiful thinker, about what Israel means or should mean to humankind, and how Noahides should approach the Arab-Israel War and the Zionist Revolution.
http://www.shmuelkatz.com/ Shmuel Katz, 1914 - 2009, a wonderfully clear-sighted thinker, worked closely with Vladimir Ze'ev Jabotinsky, and helped keep Jabotinsky's teachings alive. This site helps to keep Shmuel Katz's teachings alive, applying them to vital contemporary issues.
http://lazerbrody.typepad.com/lazer_beams/bnai_noach different Hasidic Jews - Rabbi Lazer Brody, disciple of Rabbi Nachman of Breslov - for Noahides. Be warned, however, and this goes for the chabad-influenced people mentioned above as well as all the varied groups that call themselves hasidic, or chasidic, there is no such thing as a hasidic gentile. The very concept is preposterous. Once you get past that nonsense, however, you may find some value here.
http://www.jihadwatch.org the unfolding story of Islamic jihad - Holy War [sic] - in the world.
http://www.mideastweb.org/jewreligion.htm A useful resource-page and FAQ sheet, fighting Jew Hate , or Anti-Semitism, and including info on the infamous, egregiously absurd Protocols of the Elders of Zion.
http://zionism-israel.com/jew.htm Another useful resource of the same stripe, defining what it is to be a Jew, a son or daughter of Israel, and fighting Anti-Semitism.
http://www.spielbergfilmarchive.org.il Virtual Cinema: Israel in the world.
http://matzav.com/ "The Jewish world @ your fingertips." Orthodox Jewish site, very rich, with many links. The political commentary veers weirdly to the right when it comes to U.S. politics - what is it with these people? Are Orthodox Jewish Democrats in America a silent majority? - but this is a remarkably worthwhile site otherwise.
http://www.worldnetdaily.com World Net Daily: news. A little weird, very fringe, and very biased politically, but they're pretty sane when it comes to Israel and Islam and they often have good stuff, including new stuff, that's simply not available elsewhere.
http://www.kinder-noah.de German. By and for German-speaking Noahides
http:// www.bneinoach.at By Noahides in Austria, for German-speaking Noahides
http://torontonoahides.blogspot.com For Noahides in Toronto, Ontario. If you are in Toronto or in the Greater Toronto area, here is a contact for you
http:www.//kiva.org/ Making micro-loans to struggling small entrepreneurs in Africa and most of the rest of the Third World. It struck some of us as simply a worthwhile general charity, putting Torah principles - not that Kiva has ever been known to in-any-way acknowledge them as being Torah principles - of giving charity into action. "Offering a hand up, not a handout."
http://manishtana.net/ An American-based site that's by and for Jews of Color - that is, "Black Jews," not Jews who are Chinese or Korean, Yemenite, Japanese or East Indian, but Jews whose recent ancestors include men and women who came from sub-Saharan Africa.
