Some people call it the Rainbow Covenant, the First Covenant,
and the Noahide Covenant, or ....
Whatever you call the Universal Covenant of bedrock moral precepts, it connects all humankind – from our species’ primeval beginnings, all the way forward to the end of time - to God's overflowing love and wisdom.
God is real - the Universe didn't "just happen." Moses and the other immortal prophets and sages of Israel, the Bible and Torah (the "Teaching," “Guidance,” or "Way") weren't lying. God’s Torah isn’t just for a miniscule sect or clan of people called "Jews." Rather, God – HaShem,
the LORD, Y-H-V and H - has entrusted it to Israel to elevate the world.
"Open my eyes, that I may see wondrous things out of Your Torah."
"The Torah is a unified plan for all humanity."
Midrash, Genesis Rabbah 1:1
Some people call this path Noahism, No'achism, and Noahidism. We wrote a very well-regarded book on the subject, Rainbow Covenant: Torah and the Seven Universal Laws, maintain a worldwide online membership organization, the First Covenant Foundation, publish "Covenant Connection" - our monthly newsletter - and teach. We try to help people from all walks of life (that is, not just scholars; not just Jewish people, or non-Jewish people, but everybody) benefit from this sacred and amazing precious wisdom
This is the Highway to the Good Life, to strength, wisdom, freedom, knowledge, personal actualization, and national salvation: the ancient Way of God - the Path of the Righteous.
- Rev. Jack E. Saunders, First Covenant director and co-founder

August 2018 - Volume 12.11
Article 1: "Eternal Life"... As God is eternal, so are His thoughts and memories, which are as unfading and fresh as He is. We, His creatures, children and servants, live forever in His mind....
Article 2: "Blasphemy"... Despite any sore feelings we might have about insults to HaShem or to our religious culture generally, we should not respond by attacking other religions but by trying to dispel the myths - and focusing on the truth, and by explaining, and living, the glory of our Torah's holy, eternal statutes and our Way... and More...
Positivity - Supplement to "Eternal Life," August 2018, Vol 12.12, issue
The Biblical prophets didn’t roam the world insulting other peoples’ religions. Jonah didn’t go to Nineveh to denounce the Assyrians’ infantile theology but to admonish them for the violently immoral way they led their lives. (Jonah 1:2, 3:8). We, too, shouldn’t go around insulting other religions. It’s better to try to show people how great our way is than tell them that their ways are lousy.
Some people hate falsehood – lies – very intensely: sometimes more than they love truth. But we all generally do better when we focus on the positive than on what’s false and deceiving. Celebrate what’s true....

Mankind cannot rise to the essential principles on which society must rest unless it meets with Israel. And Israel cannot fathom the depths of its own Tradition unless it meets with mankind.
- Rabbi Eliyahu Benamozegh (c. 1900)
"When you see the ideas of the prophets of Israel presented rationally, as they are here, you can see why they shall ultimately prevail.
Here is the cure for racism, neo-paganism, anti-Semitism and barbarism. You can't help but come away from here awed by God's loving-kindness and His genius."
- Rev. Jack E. Saunders
