Emuna Part 2
The Rebbe of Slonim describes Emuna as the Song of Life of a Jew. This class will be using the text of the Slonimer Rebbe, ztz”l, and his sefer Netivot Shalom Volume Aleph, as well as other holy teachings of a selection of rabbis. We will look at these texts as a springboard to discuss the many layered mitzva of believing in Hashem. Please note that this class requires a minimum of 7 paying students in order to proceed. If this number is not reached, the class may be discontinued.
Emuna Part 2: Lesson 1
Emuna Part 2: Lesson 4
DERECH HASHEM: The holy Ramchal discusses how all of the mitsvot are perfectly matched to each of us in order to come to perfection and completion. Al of the mitsvot are designed to draw us close to hashem. All of our activities are divided up into what we do because we are commanded to do so and what we do because we are compelled to do so. The holy Ramchal gives us advice how to actually live in such a way to be as close as possible to Hashem.
