Call it the First or Rainbow Covenant . . . or the Noahide or Universal Covenant . . . .
Whatever you call the great covenant between humankind and the Creator of all things, it puts us all on notice: every human being exists "in the image of God" (Genesis 1:26, 1:27, 5:1). This is a fundamental Torah precept. Every one of us - every person of every race and sex and age and economic status and health condition - is holy.
All the Seven Commandments - humankind's fundamental, universal precepts of morality and decency, all the "logical laws" of the Bible - follow from that Revelation. Starting with the precept called the Golden Rule: "do unto others as you would be done by... love your neighbor as yourself... love the stranger," etc. (Leviticus 19:18, 19:34), here are the Seven Laws - the universal Divine "mitzvos" (in Scripture's Hebrew), the Commandents, precepts, or connections - that exist to guide us all (all humankind) to the very highest levels of God-consciousness and wisdom.
Even if you reject or dislike religion, this study will reward you.
We wrote Rainbow Covenant: Torah and the Seven Universal Laws (a unique and valuable guide to the Universal Covenant), established this foundation, and publish Covenant Connection - all devoted to exploring, understanding and teaching this awesome sacred wisdom

Wisdom Craves God
[This issue:] Science and the real world increasingly point - even while most peoples are abandoning their customary religions - not just to the existence of God, HaShem, the God of Israel, but to His mind-blowing immediacy, constancy, compassion, holy acute intelligence, and INTIMACY... Speak to Him directly! He can handle it. Don't worry about clogged switchboards....
