Clearly, these are not the ideas of a people who think they are better than other nations.
While non-Jews are only obligated to obey the seven commandments given to Noah, Jews are responsible for fulfilling the 613 mitzvot in the Torah, thus G-d will punish Jews for doing things that would not be a sin for non-Jews.Although we refer to ourselves as G-d's chosen people, we do not believe that G-d chose the Jews because of any inherent superiority.According to the Talmud (Avodah Zarah 2b), G-d offered the Torah to all the nations of the earth, and the Jews were the only ones who accepted it.The story goes on to say that the Jews were offered the Torah last, and accepted it only because G-d held a mountain over their heads! , the words generally translated as "at the foot of the mountain" literally mean "underneath the mountain"!) Another traditional story suggests that G-d chose the Jewish nation because they were the lowliest of nations, and their success would be attributed to G-d's might rather than their own ability.According to traditional Judaism, G-d gave Noah and his family seven commandments to observe when he saved them from the flood.
These commandments, referred to as the Noahic or Noahide commandments, are inferred from Genesis Ch.
9, and are as follows: 1) to establish courts of justice; 2) not to commit blasphemy; 3) not to commit idolatry; 4) not to commit incest and adultery; 5) not to commit bloodshed; 6) not to commit robbery; and 7) not to eat flesh cut from a living animal.
You don't have to be Jewish to find favor in G-d's eyes G-d gave only seven basic commandments to gentiles Yiddish words for gentiles are goy, shiksa and shkutz Judaism does not approve of interfaith marriage, but it is very common Jews do not proselytize, but it is possible to convert to Judaism Judaism maintains that the righteous of all nations have a place in the world to come.
This has been the majority rule since the days of the Talmud.
Judaism generally recognizes that Christians and Moslems worship the same G-d that we do and those who follow the tenets of their religions can be considered righteous in the eyes of G-d.
Contrary to popular belief, Judaism does not maintain that Jews are better than other people.
