Maimonides rules that every Jew was commanded at Sinai to influence all of mankind to observe the Seven Noahide Laws. Therefore, even in a place where not a single Jew seems to live, you must do everything in your power to make that place more civilized, by promoting the observance of the Seven Noahide Laws.

Maimonides rules that every Jew was commanded at Sinai to influence all of mankind to observe the Seven Noahide Laws. In the past, Jews did not have the ability to do this. They were locked in ghettos and were forbidden to interact with, and certainly to influence, their non-Jewish neighbors… Torah exempts a person when circumstances are beyond his control – but it is not considered as if the mission were accomplished; the bottom line is that the goal was not achieved.

It is unquestionable that conditions have changed in recent times such that Jews and non- Jews have much greater interaction, and relations today are much closer and more connected. Therefore, even in a place where not a single Jew seems to live, you must do everything in your power to make that place more civilized, by promoting the observance of the Seven Noahide Laws.

Days of mourning/Mezuzah
Israel mourned Moses for 30 days, Abraham also mourned Sarah for 30 days and Kabbalah talks about 7 days mourning. So what is the difference between the 30 and 7 days of mourning? And which of the two is ideal?
What is a Mezuzah? And how can one get some for our homes?
