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.

BS’D Life is a series of detailed events chained together to form history. A lifetime of 120 years is minuscule compared to eternity. We are not privy to see the whole piece of jewelry.

BS’D The Zohar teaches that we see through the pupil; the black part of our eye. This represents the idea that we ‘see’ and learn through the dark times in life. When he was challenged by his suffering, Iyov asked G-d ‘Why?’ G-d replied, “Where were you when I created the world?” Iyov then realized the
BS’D One reason why difficulties arise is to remind us of G-d’s presence and motivate us to change our ways. We should constantly view ourselves and our world as transient, as if we are moving to another home. Our reality is constantly changing and helping us to move forward. When you move to another house,
BS’D Some of the many similarities between Shabbat and the World to Come include: • We prepare our bodies physically in a similar way as we do when we depart from this world – washed, nails trimmed and dressed in white. • We cease to create, build or prepare on Shabbat. In the World to
BS’D Emuna empowers us to hope and trust in G-d when beset with misfortune. Though we may lack understanding of why we suffer, pain is not ‘senseless’.

BS’D We are instructed to serve G-d out of Emuna and Bitachon – clear knowledge that G-d is always with us and steadfast trust that helps us act on that security.

BS’D The Chofetz Chaim ztk’l teaches that we are brought down into this world for the sole purpose of rectifying the world through recognition and acceptance of G-d as the Creator.
