Ask the Rabbi - Customs and Practices



Dear Rabbi

I am an observant B’nai Noah in the USA. I have a question about the Mitzvah of affixing a Mezuzah to the doorpost. I have read in some sources that B’nai Noah shouldn’t affix Mezuzah as it is a sign of Hashem’s covenant with B’nai Yisrael. However I have also read in other sources that it is permissible for B’nai Noah to affix Mezuzah so long as there is some indication (on a sign or some such thing) that states this is being done in voluntary observance of a commandment to Israel and that the home where this is being done is a Noahide home and not that of a Jew – can you clarify this for me?

thank you

In response to the spiritual and value-driven demand for the word of God to be disseminated by the nation of Israel to all of mankind, we have established “Brit Olam – the Noahide World Center” in Jerusalem. We are in constant contact with many people all over the world who have a strong desire to learn the words of God.
