“Faith is the song of life!”
Rabbi Abraham Isaac Kook (1864 – 1935)


Emunah, commonly translated as faith, is the original biblical term for a firm belief in a single, supreme, omniscient, benevolent and all-powerful Creator of the universe. It contains the belief that everything that happens to us is for our ultimate good and benefit, directing our souls to knowledge of G-d. This absolute belief in divine providence, in God’s unfailing goodness, is expressed in the Jewish hopefulness for a better world.
