Question
Are Noachides required and/or encouraged to move to Israel?
Answer
Noachides are definitely not required nor encouraged to live in Israel. 99.8% of the world is not Jewish and is meant to live and enjoy the great expanse of the vast and beautiful world which G-d created. “When G-d divided to the nations their inheritance… He set the boundaries of the nations according to the size of Israel” (Deut. 32, 8). The land of Israel was promised to the nation of Israel, where we are meant to be concentrated and not assimilate with others, thus enabling us to contribute our special heritage universally without dilution. On the other hand, we welcome you with open arms to visit whenever you wish, that we will merit to see Jerusalem as the center of prayer and G-dly morality for all of mankind (Isaiah 2, 2; 56, 7). With Blessings from Israel, Rabbi Ari Shvat
