Emuna provides genuine clarity; a higher spiritual sensitivity, a reason for all events and a solution to one’s difficulties. Emuna brings a person to ‘see’ what he originally believed in principle. A great reward to living a life of emuna is attaining a tangible awareness of the presence of G-d. One of the biggest values in learning and living a life of emuna is reaching a place of inner composure and well-being which comes as a result of knowing that there is a G-d who loves us and is intimately involved in every aspect of our lives. The shift to living a life of emuna needs to be taught and practiced daily. It is for this purpose the Daily Dose of Emuna was created. It is my genuine hope that you will develop emuna vision by learning Emuna together with the thousands who have already begun.

Share this on WhatsAppBS’D One of the greatest ‘unknowns’ of sin is revealed in the Zohar HaKadosh, Parshat Pinchas. When a person sins he draws onto himself ‘ruach tumah’, an impure spirit. This impurity directs a person towards arrogance. Therefore the initial stages of teshuva must include a crushing of haughtiness; in other words a
Share this on WhatsAppBS’D Where are we going? Lech Lecha the Torah instructs, Go for yourself… What, where, how? To the land that I (Hashem) will show you… But where?

Share this on WhatsAppBS’D Chazal teach us to pray with heartfelt intent that Hashem soon rebuild the Beit HaMikdash and hasten the geula. Why does Chazal find the need to emphasize that we ask for the redemption? Shouldn’t it be a given that every Jew pray for it to happen? Unfortunately to many it is
Share this on WhatsAppBS’D Love is a positive emotion that moves and connects people. However we live in an ‘I’ generation that encourages us to take care of ‘me’ over the ‘we’.
