If one wishes to be a mechanic, a doctor, a lawyer, a burger flipper or anything else in this life one must learn what is required for success and perfect that skill set. Why would emunah be any different? Active, complete faith (or emunah in Hebrew) must be intentionally developed with accurate knowledge coupled with personal experience and intent. The twofold foundation of emunah is Torah and Hitbodedut. A person with proper understanding of Torah (the Jewish Scriptures) and who invests time in Hitbodedut (personal payer) will most certainly develop deep emunah. Through emunah one merits to experience great joy and contentment.
Through our LearnEmunah.com topical written studies, live broadcasts, services and videos anyone who wishes to learn emunah can develop meaningful active faith in HaShem and thus realize Devekut (attachment to G-d). To this end we offer four weekly scheduled broadcasts on YouTube and Zoom, as well as a weekly Fireside Chat and Craft group (Zoom only). We also offer free streaming traditional Jewish Shabbat and holiday services. All Jews and ethical monotheists are welcome.

"Since there are enough people practicing rejection, I prefer to fill the role of one who embraces"
-- Rav Kook, first modern Chief Rabbi of Jerusalem.
There's an old story about Reb Zusya, a great Tzadik, that we can all learn from:Lying on his death bed, Reb Zusya was very upset and crying, tears streaming down his face.And we have this from Rebbe Nachman of Breslov:
His students asked with great concern, "Reb Zusya, why are you upset? Why are you crying? Are you afraid that when you die you will be asked why you were not more like Moshe Rabbeinu?"
Reb Zusya replied, "I am not afraid that the Holy One will ask me "Zusya, why were you not more like Moshe Rabbeinu" No, I fear that the Holy One will say, "Zusya, why were you not more like Zusya?"The essence of Judaism is to conduct oneself in pure innocence and simplicity, with no sophistication whatever. Make sure that whatever you do, G-d is there. Don't heed your own honor. If it enhances G-d's glory, do it. If not, then don't. This way, you can be certain you will never stumble. Be careful to act with true innocence and simplicity, but not foolishly. Sophistication, however, is quite unnecessary. Simplicity, innocence, and faith can bring you to the highest level of joy (Likutey Moharan II, 12).
Always remember: happiness is not a side matter in your spiritual journey --
It is essential -- Rebbe Nachman of Breslov
