Chassidus for Noahides
Chassidus for Noahides
A prime purpose of the moral code of the Seven Universal Commandments is to teach Noahides about the Oneness of G-d, and therefore those parts of Torah that pertain to this knowledge are entirely permissible for Noahides to study.
Rabbi Eliyahu Touger, in his commentary to Maimonides Mishneh Torah (Laws of Kings 10:9), writes regarding this:
“In order to observe the prohibition against the worship of false gods correctly, one must become aware of G-d’s unity. Accordingly, a number of contemporary Sages have suggested the translation of certain basic Chassidic and Kabbalistic texts into English with the intent that they be studied by gentiles.”
