EMUNAH אמונה

In the quest we call LIFE, often we encounter moments that test our resolve. Sometimes those tests stir deep-seated fears and insecurities within us. It is in these moments that faith becomes our guiding light, offering solace and a steadfast anchor amidst the storm. FAITH is a knowing in that which is not seen. In Hebrew, Faith translates to ’emunah’, the very utterance is a trust and conviction in the divine, urging us to look beyond our immediate struggles, to sow into fertile ground and divorce ourselves from pain and fear.

Hebrew word for FAITH:

emunah –  אמונה alef/mem/vav/nun/heh 

If we are weak and allow fear to overrule us, then we find ourselves further from what The Most High intended for us. In ANU we learn and understand the immense impact fear can have on our lives, not just as individuals, but also on the quality and depth of our relationships. Fear, when left unchecked, can create barriers to love, understanding – our communal connections. However, when we face our fears with faith—we unlock the potential for profound personal and collective transformation.

Command the Day: Fear Not – Faith and Knowing

This journey of overcoming fear and insecurity through Emunah calls us to action, to actively invest in positive thoughts, deeds, and relationships that nurture our spiritual well-being and foster a sense of belonging.As we navigate the uncertainties of life, let us remember that faith is a powerful tool for confronting and overcoming the fears that hold us back.


“For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.”

2 Timothy 1:7 (KJV, 1611)
