Although Judaism is not a proselytizing religion in the classical sense, is there any responsibility to bring non-jews to monotheism and away from idolatry?

  • My question nothing to do with the truth of judaism just monotheism – Big Mouth Nov 14 '19 at 12:13
  • Jews don't proselytize. It is always imperative to share the truth with Jews first. If you're on a bus and there is a secular Jew and a non-Jews, always teach the Jew first. It is your responsibility to bring as many Jews as you can to the Torah. It is a mitzvah. As for non-Jews, they come second. Rambam actually says it is permitted to teach non-Jews, but they should not read the Torah, it can damage them spiritually. They must stay away from the Talmud and only follow the 7 mitzvot. – Turk Hill Nov 14 '19 at 14:09
  • This is the classical way. Basically, Jews would have been more concerned for non-Jews had they not been persecuted by them for two millennia. – Turk Hill Nov 14 '19 at 14:09
  • @BigMouth If I’m understanding your question and comment correctly, is judaism.stackexchange.com/q/105385 a better question to mark this as a duplicate of? – DonielF Nov 15 '19 at 4:40
  • @DonielF I was thinking more to dissuade Non-jews from idolatrous worship (christianity possibly), not necessarily to adopt a different belief system. – Big Mouth Nov 15 '19 at 20:15
