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 here is what the Nazis tried to stamp out.
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, not illusory - the world is not an illusion - and when men or animals feel pain it's 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 nasty impulses in human beings, towards racism, xenophobia, injustice, superstition, lack of faith, lack of humor, and cruelty, to make the world a holy garden.
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 and suggest you go 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 follows from the principle enunciated in what the Bible, in the Book of Genesis, reveals as Universal Revelation, that God made every single person "in His Image" - that is, as an infinitely sacred being, not a mere object, not merely an animal, but in some very profound respects literally like God. We are privileged to live in a universe under God Who made us very like Him - in His "image." 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 and the great universal moral laws, and the Torah system generally: Rainbow Covenant: Torah and the Seven Universal Laws.

Treating Scripture Like a Joke
Fifth Month of the Plague... Prohecies that seemed dubious if not preposterous when they issued, thousands of years ago: fulfilled! ... Little things that the ignorant and misled are missing... Coming into a conscious one-to-one relationship with God - GOD! - Himself ... Alas, what happens when someone "gets" it? When the sincere seeker, bewildered by determinative proofs of God, turns to trusted clergy and philosophers?More
