Pakistan


In Pakistan, there is a group of about two hundred families who come out of the Noahide movement (a group that practices the seven laws given to the sons of Noah in the Book of Genesis). They are connected to Rabbi Yakov Cohen, director of The Institute of the Noahide Code, a United Nations-accredited NGO, which is dedicated to teaching Noahide practice, and to a woman in Pakistan who is connected to Rabbi Riskin of Ohr Torah Stone yeshiva in Israel. The community started in 1974, all the men are circumcised, and on Shabbat they come together regularly to study Torah.
