Before I begin, I’d just like the readers to be aware that this article was completely unsolicited. Actually, I basically had to force Rav Brody to publish it, as he shies away from being written about. He may be able to chop a wooden board in half with his bare hand, but he knows that saying no to me could put one in life-threatening danger, God forbid. The truth is, I feel that the message of this article can be of great benefit to everyone, particularly those who are down on themselves.
If you’ve been exposed to the wisdom of emuna, chances are you’ve also been exposed to Rav Lazer Brody, shlit”a. Known as the man who brings Rav Shalom Arush’s teachings on emuna to the entire English-speaking world, he is loved and admired by many. Those who have had the opportunity to meet him in person couldn’t help but feel such genuine care and warmth radiating from his heart.
Because of his efforts and tremendous self-sacrifice, the wisdom of emuna and personal prayer have spread across the globe, and across humanity. Jews from all levels of observance are learning about emuna, as are non-Jews from all ethnic backgrounds and religious beliefs.
It is obvious that enlightening others about emuna is the main part of his mission on Earth. But what about the rest of him? Surely there must be more to him than his magnetic personality and his Ultra-Orthodox look. Just who is Lazer Brody, and why did Hashem choose to put him in such a unique and influential position?
