Emunah Impacts Lives

  • Itzik Elstein, a True Emunah Hero Reaches for the Stars

    3Itzik Elstein, now 20, was a resident at Emunah's Youth Village in Pardes Chana, for more than 9 years. As Itzik settled into his new "home" he started to feel secure and loved for the first time in his life, helping him to believe in a future for himself. It is there, that he first began to set goals for himself, and to reach them. 

    As Itzik grew up, he dreamed of  being a pilot in the Israeli Air Force.  With that goal in mind, he set out to make his

  • Leah's Story - Emunah's Neve Michael Children's Emergency Center

    Little Leah was recently brought to Emunah's Neve Michael Children's Emergency Center. She is slight and brittle and the look in those sad dark eyes tells an awful tale. There is a desolate place in her soul emanating through those cheerless eyes, as if someone took the light out of her life.

    The circumstances of Leah's arrival at Emunah's Neve Michael are similar to those of so many of our children. She was brought here by Court order after the Welfare authorities determined that her natural parents were no longer capable of raising her in a normal family environment. They were

Dear Friends, 

Every year we read and hear about Pesach sedarim held from one end of the world to the other. From Katmandu to Canberra, from Cape Town to Montevideo. Tens of thousands of Jewish and Israeli tourists are united around the table, to tell, listen and feel that they are the descendants of the same nation that was led by Moses out of Egypt. This gives us a great deal of food for thought. Uniquely, there, in locations so far apart, differences are set aside, disagreements are silenced, and rivalries dissipate. Precisely in such foreign places, Jews find each other and share thousands of years of tradition together. 

As faithful friends and partners of Emunah and our unique way, you’re most certainly aware that we strive not only to demand but also to implement our heritage, the love of man and our commitment to society. As members of Emunah we do not hide in the safety of our own comfort zone, but rather continue our search to find paths to the hearts of our brothers and sisters wherever they may be. It is our aim to renew the spirit and to enhance our environment through abundant unity, love and fellowship. 

Through the essence and values of the Festival of Passover we are able to absorb energy and experiences that encourage us to come up with new innovative ideas and the strength to implement them. The Exodus from Egypt was the beginning of a process of redemption and freedom. May the Almighty bless us with only happiness and good tidings. 

In the words of Heinrich Heine (New Spring 1831) 

Soft, aloft, the bells do ring,

Gentlest thoughts they sing me.

Ring and sing, my song of spring,

Through the blue sky wing thee

Chag Kasher VeSameach to you, your families and all Beit Yisrael.
