Welcome to the Hebrew Revolution
The First Covenant - also known as the Rainbow Covenant, following the Bible's Book of Genesis, chapter 9 - is what you might call the Outpatient Department for the entire Hebrew Revolution (that is, the Biblical System, the Way of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Moses, Aaron, Moses, David, all the Biblical prophets, the Children of Israel, etc.), the Golden Tradition, the Ancient Way, the Path of the Righteous, etc.
This movement here is what the Nazis tried to eliminate.
The Universe didn't "just happen." God is real - even though He gets a bad rap from people refusing to learn anything about Who He actually is - and Creation is real. When a tree falls in a forest, He hears. NONE of the Old Testament prophets was a liar. The human race and the Jewish people are real. Animals are real. The world is not an illusion. The pain of men and animals is real.
The Children of Israel - in the Bible, the Jews are the "elder brother" of the human race (Exodus 4:22) - are God's "peculiar instrument" (Exodus 19:5). The mission: elevating mankind. The Hebrew Revolution is the vehicle by which human beings overcome all the retrograde racist, xenophobic, cruel, superstitious, faithless, humorless, unjust impulses in human nature.
If you think that a loving God Who is involved with His Creation and concerned with every person, force and particle within it is wishful or too good to be true, we have news for you and suggest that you go here. If you think religion is "opium for the masses," and that the mission of Israel and the Teaching of Israel (the "Torah") in the world is reactionary, irrational or stale, we have news for you; please look here.
Israel's obligation to transmit God's Universal laws to others is much of the reason, Israel's Sages wrote, for the Jews' dispersion among the nations. [From Rainbow Covenant]
The First or Rainbow Covenant and all the wisdom in it is the principal pathway for Noahides, "Gentiles," or Non-Jews to approach and relate to God.
That is what our book and this foundation are all about.
Every genuinely moral law under Heaven follows from the principle enunciated in what the Bible, in the Book of Genesis, reveals as Universal Revelation: that God made every person "in His Image" - that is, as an infinitely sacred being, in some very profound respects literally like God.
The ‘Golden Rule’ (Do unto others….) directly follows. Then come the Seven Universal Commandments: the wealth of wisdom of the Noahide Covenant, the First Covenant, Rainbow Covenant, and Noahism ("No'achism" and "Noahidism").
We wrote a highly regarded book about the Universal Covenant - the First or Rainbow Covenant - and the great universal moral laws, and the Torah system generally: Rainbow Covenant: Torah and the Seven Universal Laws.

Saul Was a Jerk
Saul Was a Jerk. Rabbi Michael Katz doesn't like such talk but Saul was a Divine joke on Israel. Anointed by God, he did well for a while but hung on lawlessly past his time, committing abominable crimes and bringing military catastrophe down on Israel. The prophet Samuel lectured Israel on the evils of monarchy - the Torah commands Israel to establish a good government, not tyranny - and his language helped start America's Revolution! Heedlessly, Israel picked a booby prize of a leader, George Washington without the substance. Israel is still arguing about what if any deference is due... and More!
