Sincerely, Orit Esther Riter
Orit Esther Riter from the online articles “Daily Dose of Emuna” and head of “Events with Emuna” WELCOMES YOU!!!!!
The goal of the Daily Dose of Emuna emails, shiurim, listening g’mach and upcoming book is to spiritually guide and teach practical coping skills on how to tackle life’s challenges. The intention of every email and class is to assist each person in finding her personal path that leads to a closer relationship with Hashem.
Orit encounters women daily from all walks of life and from all over the world in order to offer emotional strength and direction weaved with honesty and care. The emphasis is to leave women with greater feelings of emuna, light and hope.
The Torah teaches, “You shall know this day and cause it to dwell in your heart that Hashem is G-d in heaven above and on the earth below; there is none else but Him.” (Sefer Devarim 4:39).
There are two stages to learning heartfelt emuna. The initial stage begins in the mind; the latter step is ‘causing it to dwell in one’s heart’. It begins as intellectual emuna; an unwavering mindset that there is only One creator who runs every miniscule aspect of the world. The second is the process of implanting this knowledge in one’s heart to the point where one experiences it in the deepest way.
Emuna (faithfulness) is an innate gift bestowed by Hashem to every Jew – however it must be constantly cultivated and reawakened for it to be real. In the Talmud Masechet Makkot (24a) we are taught of the vital importance of learning emuna through the verse, “v’Tzaddik b’Emunato Yichyeh (The righteous man will live by his faith)”
** We need emuna to live! **
We should strive to live a life that resonates with emuna; where it flows in our arteries and pumps life into our body. Emuna defines a life where we believe that Hashem never has, does or will forsake us.
We need to make the effort and develop our emuna – shifting it from an innate sense of truth to a committed recognition of truth. When a person knows something with certainty, he is not afraid to ask questions since he is loyal to the deep inner truth he has internalized.
There is nothing like the calm conviction that radiates with clear comprehension – a place where no doubt rises even when questions appear. When we take the time to learn emuna our lives will begin to sculpt a pure path enriched with purpose.
How does one begin to live a life of emuna? It is here at the Daily Dose of Emuna where you can acquire the tools to be well on your way, B’H. Allow yourself to learn a different way of living and share the gift with others.
Stay in touch and post your comments. We would love to hear from you!
