Strengthening Our Emunah in Uncertain Times - Rabbi Dovid Horowitz

Loosely translated as faith in God, Emunah is considered the cornerstone of Jewish belief and practice. 
Unfortunately, many people assume that Emunah refers to blind faith. However, this is not the case. In the Aleinu prayer recited at or near the end of every prayer service, we proclaim: "And you shall know today, and take to heart, that God is the only God…" We are instructed to know that God exists. Blind leaps of faith have nothing to do with knowledge; they are expressions of what one wishes to be true, not what is in fact necessarily true.

We defiantly live in very challenging and uncertain times, strengthening our Emunah should help us to continue our journey with the smile...
