Non-Jews are prohibited from Torah study. However, I would be inclined to think that they are allowed, if not encouraged, to study the 7 Commandments for the Descendants of Noach. Is this true? If yes, is there a difference between in-depth and just surface-level study? And, would they be rewarded for such study in the World to Come?

  • I would think they're obligated.
