Kobi Peretz Becomes a Baal Teshuva

With all the difficult news from around the world, and all the hardships of our people - particularly in France - it's time for good news. The secular media is now reporting - and it's official - that Israel's tremendously popular singer Kobi Peretz has decided to become a Torah-observant Jew.

Kobi met my esteemed and beloved teacher Rav Shalom Arush, may Hashem bless him, and was so enraptured with him, that his whole life changed. Rav Shalom saved Kobi from divorce. Rav Shalom taught Kobi how to speak to Hashem in personal prayer, and Kobi even accompanied Rav Shalom on an "Emuna Outreach" mission of giving out books and CDs to IDF soldiers. Israel's Channel 2 released a documentary of Kobi's teshuva and his encounter with Rav Shalom Arush, which we're delighted to present here. Even though it's in Hebrew, you'll undoubtedly understand what's happening - this film speaks to the heart, as does Kobi's singing. This is all a small part of what Rav Shalom and Emuna Outreach are doing in Israel alone:

I don't know who Kobi Peretz is, he's got a great voice, lol, but this sure did look a little weird. Emuna can create such amazing dichotomies. Thanks for keeping us American's up to date with all the exciting Emuna news.




Wonderful to learn..... HaShem is good...


Another soul won (after getting into trouble for tax offenses). Another singer who -- righteously -- will never share the stage with women. Whoop-dee-doo.
