Chief Rabbi: Gentiles Must Follow Torah to Remain in Israel

Monday, March 28, 2016 |  Israel Today Staff

Israel’s Sephardic Chief Rabbi Yitzhak Yosef on Saturday preached that if Gentiles want to live in the Land of Israel, they need to accept and obey those portions of the Torah that are relevant to them.

In the weekend sermon, Yosef insisted that “according to Jewish law, gentiles should not live in the Land of Israel.”

However, an exception could be made for those who “agree to take on the seven Noahide Laws” and serve Israel.

The Noahide Laws are a portion of the Torah commandments that deal with faith in God, blasphemy, murder, sexual immorality, theft and certain kosher requirements.

Yosef warned that when the Messiah comes, all Gentiles who have failed to live according to these biblical commandments will be expelled from the Land.
