Some people call it the Rainbow Covenant, the First Covenant,
the Noahide Covenant, or ....
Whatever you call the Universal Covenant, through it humankind enjoys dominion over this planet, on the one hand, and, on the other, is gifted with the bedrock, Godly moral precepts upon which civilization depends. From humanity’s primeval beginnings, forward to the end of time, it connects us all - whatever our religion - to God's wisdom and His overflowing love.
He - God - is real. The Universe didn't "just happen." Abraham, Moses and the other prophets and sages of the Bible and Torah (the "Teaching") weren't lying. The great wisdom of the Torah isn’t just for a little sect called "Jews." Rather, God – the Lord, HaShem, El, Yah - granted it
to Israel to uplift our whole species.
"Open my eyes, that I may see wondrous things out of Your Torah."
"The Torah is a unified plan for all humanity."
Midrash, Genesis Rabbah 1:1
Some people call this path Noahism, No'achism, or Noahidism. We wrote a well-regarded book - the best book available! - on the subject: Rainbow Covenant: Torah and the Seven Universal Laws. We maintain a worldwide online membership organization, the First Covenant Foundation, and publish "Covenant Connection" - our monthly newsletter. We try to help people from all religions, nations, colors and walks of life discover this amazing sacred wisdom
This is the Highway to the Good Life, to strength, wisdom, freedom, knowledge, personal actualization, and national salvation: the ancient Way of God - the Path of the Righteous.
- Rev. Jack E. Saunders, First Covenant director and co-founder

Mankind cannot rise to the essential principles on which society must rest unless it meets with Israel. And Israel cannot fathom the depths of its own Tradition unless it meets with mankind.
- Rabbi Eliyahu Benamozegh (c. 1900)
"When you see the ideas of the prophets of Israel presented rationally, as they are here, you can see why they shall ultimately prevail.
Here is the cure for racism, neo-paganism, anti-Semitism and barbarism. You can't help but come away from here awed by God's loving-kindness and His genius."
- Rev. Jack E. Saunders
