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 The Shomer Emunim ztk’l teaches that this generation has the opportunity to rectify all past misdeeds of all of past lives since the beginning of time. As it is always darkest before the dawn, our generation is faced with intense nisyonot and temptations. Yet, by overcoming such challenges we will be able to uplift all
BS’D The Torah refers to the End of Days Ikveh d’Meshicha, the heels of the Mashiach. The AriZal points out that a heel is a seemingly unimportant part of the body that does not appear to contribute to our higher spiritual or intellectual faculties. The whole body steps on it and it steps on dirt.
BS’D There is a simple yet proven practice brought down by Rav Chaim m’Volozhin ztk’l that empowers us to live with strong emuna and acceptance.

BS’D Think about it – G-d is watching, caring, protecting, safeguarding and waiting to hear from you at every moment. Rav Tzaddok HaCohen of Lublin ztk’l teaches that a fundamental part of having emuna in G-d is the belief that He is looking out for our ultimate best. It might come out in the form
