Beit Emunah is a traditional albeit unique online Jewish shul (synagogue) that welcomes all people of good will.
The Hebrew word בית (beit) means house. The word אמונה (emunah) refers to active or motivating faith. Our shul (i.e. house of study and worship) is therefore known as Beit Emunah. We are a community, a 'house', that gathers together online to study, to share in informative and friendly conversions, and to come before HaShem in worship. Because we believe Judaism is One we embrace all Jews regardless of sectarian divisions. While we lean more towards the Sephardic side of Jewish tradition, we also embrace much from the Ashkenzai side. We seek enlightenment from Rabbi Israel Baal Shem Tov and his grandson Rebbe Nachman of Breslov and yet are open to all Jewish learning. While recieve insights and inspiration from the mystical Jewish sages we do so with our feet planted on the solid ground of Torah.
The Beit Emunah shul is located in cyber space on Zoom. Most of our broadcasts and services are simulcast on Facebook, YouTube and D-Live. Since many people can not attend traditional shuls due to mobility issues, due to distance and the halachic prohibition on driving on Shabbat. Others can not attend shuls because they are not welcome for one reason or another. In this day and age there is no reason for such people to be alone on Shabbat and the Jewish holidays, for them not to study with likeminded people. All people of good will are welcome to join us.
