Serenity. Hope. Strength: The world of Living Emunah.
Why have literally hundreds of thousands of people made the Living Emunah series an important -- and beloved -- part of their lives? Is it the serenity that they feel, when they read stories of Hashem’s infinite chesed to His People? Is it the hope that envelops them, when they learn to truly feel that Hashem is watching over them? Is it the strength it gives them to face their challenges with patience and faith?
Yes, the extraordinary success of the Living Emunah series -- with more than 300,000 copies in print -- is due to all those reasons , and more. For its many readers have discovered that when they “live emunah” their lives are enriched, their relationships are improved, and, most important, their connection to Hashem is incomparably strengthened.
And there are the stories. So many stories. The businessman who went from needing charity funds for his family’s food to giving out thousands of dollars to the poor -- in less than a year. The rabbi who went to the “wrong” hospital - at exactly the “right time.” The family that chose the path of emunah and gratitude, and saw what could have been a disastrous weekend turn into a wonderful and memorable vacation.
When we “live emunah,” problems turn into challenges, challenges morph into opportunities, and opportunities become the foundation for lives of joy and tranquility.
