The Light in the Darkness

The darkness is getting heavier by the day: good and righteous people are becoming infected with and dying from COVID-19. Antisemites around the world are blaming the Jews. The secular media both in the USA and in Israel are blaming the Haredim. The tests of emuna are unprecedented, especially in the critical ares of health and income, but it's no coincidence that this is all happening right before Passover. Is there any light in all this darkness? What's happening? Let's find out...

Coronavirus: The Concealed Blessing

Emuna teaches us that everything is from Hashem is a loving Father, so that everything He does is for our ultimate benefit. If we look close enough, we can find a concealed blessing within every creation. If so, the big question is, what could possibly be a blessing about a pandemic in general, and Coronavirus in particular? Let's get some answers in today's podcast...

The Reward of Life

These days, during the challenge of the Coronavirus pandemic, any person with the slightest bit of emuna thanks Hashem profusely for every new day of life, even every moment of life. As things are getting shut down by the minute, we are limited in our choices. But, there is one important choice we can make, where we earn the reward of a good and healthy life, just as our sages promise...

Coronavirus: Softening Stiff Necks

In this week's Torah portion, Moses begs Hashem to forgive the nation of Israel for the sin of the golden calf and says, "please pardon them of their sin, Hashem, for they are a stiff-necked people." (Exodus 34:9)

A stiff neck is the Torah's way of saying stubborn. Like any other character trait, stubbornness can go either way, for good or for evil. Throughout the ages, our righteous people have been so stubborn in their faith that they preferred to endure torture and death in sanctification of Hashem's Name rather than compromise their emuna. On the other hand, the riff-raff of our people have always stubbornly refused to recognize Hashem's monarchy and His Divine Providence, choosing the path of publicly and blatantly trampling the Torah's laws, from the time of Moses to the present.

Hashem is not some old lady in the sky that can do nothing against the Corona Virus, Heaven forbid. The first principle of our emuna is the "He alone did does and will do every deed." The Coronavirus, like all powers of evil, are emissaries of the Almighty and the executioners of stern judgment in the world. But like all powers, they can be harnessed to do good as well. Today's podcast shows the amazing way that the Coronavirus is paving the way to Moshiach...

Gog and Magog: Postwar Fallout

Are Gog and Magog really dead? Will there be a nuclear war? What about Moshiach, where does he fit in to the current-events news puzzle? What does the Noahide movement have to do with all of this?  Today's podcast looks at what's happening all around us through eyes of emuna and puts contemporary affairs in their proper spiritual perspective.

A Healthy National Heart

There isn't a single one of us that doesn't have a problem that hurts. To understand why, we must look at our spiritual health. We are all limbs of the whole body known as the Jewish People. Oftentimes, the pain in a limb is pain that has been radiated from the heart. In that vein, our individual problems are radiated from our national heart, Jerusalem and the Beit Hamikdash.
