Riskin to Launch Noahide Center

Riskin to launch interfaith center

Jewish Telegraph Agency


Rabbi Shlomo Riskin is launching an Orthodox center for dialogue with Christians.

Organizers of the Center for Jewish-Christian Understanding and Cooperation say it is the first Orthodox Jewish institution of its kind dedicated to theological dialogue with Christians.

The center, which is slated to open in June in Efrat, Israel, will host seminars for Jewish and Christian scholars and promote research aimed at making religion an instrument of peace in the world.

"A sea change has occurred since the Shoah,” Riskin, the chief rabbi of Efrat, told the Christian Post. “Most churches now teach that God remains faithful to His covenant with the Jewish people, and that the biblical promise is continually being reaffirmed by the Jewish return to its homeland in Zion."

In January 2008, in a Jerusalem Post editorial, Rabbi Shlomo Riskin reminded his fellow so-called "Jews" that they're obligated to proselytize the "Goyim" to follow the anti-Biblical Talmudic "Noahide Laws:"

... Maimonides rules that only the Jews must keep the 613 commandments for ultimate "salvation"; it is enough for the gentile world to accept the Seven Noahide Laws of morality (Laws of Kings [Hilchot Melachim] 8,10).

But we certainly must proselytize every human being to keep those seven laws ... (Rabbi Shlomo Riskin, "Parashat Yitro: Every Knee Shall Bend," Jerusalem Post, Jan 24, 2008)


Who Says Judaism Isn't a Proselytizing System?
