Never Give Up!

Thanks so much to everyone for your warm feedback from yesterday's Emuna Baby post. Despite a dozen-plus miscarriages and indescribable hardship, Esther Nava refused to give up. Where did she learn that from?

Imagine that your life's work went up in smoke and you're already more than a hundred years old; would you have the strength to start all over? Rebbe Akiva did. See this:


The Emuna Baby

Don't ever give up! Esther Nava suffered disappointment after hardship; if over a dozen miscarriages weren't enough, she suffered a traumatic divorce. The clock kept ticking and her 40th birthday was getting close - how and when we will she ever have children? She never gave up. Not only did she strengthen herself in Emuna, she built a Facebook group of nearly 4,000 women whom she strengthens in emuna. Hashem sent Esther Nava a warm, beautiful-hearted husband, a moshavnik named Avi Aharoni. Now, we can reveal the closely guarded secret: the emuna baby was born 8 days ago, and today, he entered into the covenant of Avraham Avinu, baruch Hashem. The baby's spiritual grandfather (LB) was the sandak. Here's the story where we all learn an important lesson - Ein Od Milvado! Don't ever lose hope, for there is no one but Hashem and He can do whatever He wants whenever He wants. Here are 5 minutes of encouragement, filmed 45 minutes after the bris, with emuna baby Eitan Michael Eliya Aharoni in my arms helping me to spread the message of emuna:

Curing the Age-Old Plague

Blessings for a healthy summer! At this time of the year during the Counting of the Omer, Rebbe Akiva's 24,000 students died because they didn't properly respect one another. We still mourn them, almost 2,000 later, because we haven't yet corrected their sin. We're all still guilty of intramural hate. Do you know why? We haven't yet learned the lesson of the Four Sons on Seder night. Let me explain, with an amazing story from sixty years ago, about my father, of blessed memory...
