The Seven Laws of Noah are also called the Noahide Laws.
According to the Talmud, these laws were given to Noah by God as binding laws for all mankind.
As every person on earth is a child of Noah, these laws apply to all of mankind, not only the Jews. This according to the Noahide movement.
It is said that any non-Jew who follows these laws is assured a place in the world to come.
Six of these laws were given first to Adam in the Garden of Eden.
The seventh law “eating flesh from a living animal” was added after the Flood of Noah.
There is a growing movement of non-Jews who have accepted these Laws of Noah and have chosen to live their lives according to them.
The movement is called the B’nei Noach, Children of Noah.
The rainbow is the modern symbol of the Noahide Movement.
This is in remembrance of the rainbow that appeared after the Great Flood of the Bible.
