A Jew is responsible not only to teach Torah to Jews, but also to teach the Seven Noahide Laws to non-Jews.
Lubavitcher Rebbe
United Nations
Disc 83, Program 331

Event Date: 10 Shevat 5742 - February 03, 1982

A Jew is responsible not only to teach Torah to Jews, but also to teach the Seven Noahide Laws to non-Jews.

G-d did not leave humanity to fumble in the darkness. He gave them the Torah of Light, which gives clear guidance for the non-Jew, explaining exactly how to deal with every possible scenario. This includes Torah’s instruction to follow the “Law of the Land.” Secular Law bolsters Judaism inasmuch as it promotes peace and security in the world, as Jeremiah declares: “Pray for the peace of the government, for in its peace you shall find peace.”

Even in the intense darkness of the Egyptian exile, “the Jewish People had light” – the light that was shown to them by Moses, the leader and “Faithful Shepherd” of the generation. So too, in this final exile we have the opportunity to follow the light of Torah and Mitzvos, proudly and vibrantly, and to prepare the world for the true and complete Redemption, by teaching all the nations to rise to their fullest potential and “unite to serve G-d as one.”
