Were the Patriarchs Noahides or Israelites?

A detailed analysis of the Torah status of the Patriarchs and the 12 Tribes. Were they merely in the category of Noahides with extra personal commitments or did they actually convert to be Jewish? Examining many pre-Sinai narratives, as well as the commentary of Rashi, as recorded in the manuscripts, sheds light on this query.

It would be helpful to your non Jewish subscribers if the salient points of the Rabbi's article could be printed out. I have difficulty hearing/comprehending what he is saying.
Thanks Tony Reply
