Frequently Asked Questions
What is Emunah?

What is Emunah?
The Hebrew word אמונה – “Emunah” means belief, and is related to the Hebrew word אמת –“Emet” which means truth. Emunah is believing in the truth of the existence of One Divine Being– Hashem. Emunah (faith in Hashem) is the ultimate goal of every living soul to consciously believe in Hashem’s Oneness as the Divine source for all creation. Emunah is to accept that everything that happens in the world and in our lives is part of Hashem’s intricate plan to further the process of achieving tikun (rectification) in the world. Through Emunah, we believe that Hashem unconditionally loves all human beings, and cares about our wellbeing and growth. Emunah is pertinent to our healing process, through developing trust in the power of Hashem to bestow good and to heal. Emunah can profoundly enhance our healing, becoming our life-line for the future.

What is EmunahHealing?
EmunaHealing is a Torah-based system of spiritual healing that teaches you to access Hashem’s healing light within. Both the Hebrew words בריאה (briya) –“creation” and בריאות (briyut) –“health” share the same Hebrew root ברא (bara). This is no coincidence, as the state of our health depends on the extent to which we allow Hashem to re-create us every moment. Since Hashem, the Creator of the world, continues to re-create and breathe life into everything in existence, every single moment, the key to taking care of our own health is removing the exterior layers (klipot) that block Hashem’s life-giving energy from freely flowing within all the parts of our being, through our organs, emotions and psyche. When done with the proper conscious intention (kavanah) by the EmunaHealer together with the person being treated, EmunaHealing enables the identification and dissolving of these klipot. Through the tefilah and meditative energy work of EmunaHealing, we unblock negative energy and infuse Hashem’s light into each part of the people whom we treat. In turn, we are letting go and allowing Hashem to run our lives, while implementing our free choice to choose life, light, and closeness to our Creator.

How may EmunaHealing help me to heal?

How may EmunaHealing help me to heal?
EmunaHealing can help you realign with your true self and empower you to actualize your full potential, by removing the blockages that limit you from moving forward and truly healing. Negative emotions weigh most people down, poisoning them with stress, sadness, and resentment. Through EmunaHealing, you can finally let go of holding onto these negative emotions that block your healing process. EmunaHealing can help you acknowledge buried resentments that zap your drive and willpower, and release past hurts. The EmunaHealer will help you to remove the thorns – your fears, grudges and anger, and to then encourage you to walk on the cleared path, through guided meditation and positive affirmations.

Studies show that “unforgiveness” leads to stress, emotional eating, weight gain and illness. Through EmunaHealing, you can learn to truly forgive yourself, as well as people in your past and present life. By recognizing that Hashem accepts you with unconditional love, EmunaHealing can help open your heart to self-love, thereby facilitating your healing process. In addition, EmunaHealing will encourage you to implement positive changes in your self-image and lifestyle, in order to truly heal.

Do I need to be a religious Jew, or even Jewish?
To receive EmunaHealing treatment, all you need is a desire to heal, and to grow spiritually.

EmunaHealing, as a Jewish spiritual system of healing, is designed to heal Jews. However, if you are in the conversion process, or you are a gentile interested in Jewish spirituality, receiving an EmunaHealing treatment might be suitable for you.

To become an EmunaHealer and prior to enrollment in the EmunaHealing training courses with Rebbetzin Chana Bracha, you need to be a Jewish woman who follows the Torah path, which includes keeping the Halacha (code of the Jewish law) especially Shabbat, kashrut and family purity.

Exceptions are made at times, so if you don’t fulfill these requirements but still are interested in the courses, just contact us at emunahealing@berotbatayin.org

Can EmunaHealing be applied to couples or men?
EmunaHealing with Rebbetzin Chana Bracha is for women, as well as for couples who are looking for a spiritual Torah-based approach to relationship therapy. In the future, it may be possible to refer men individually to an appropriate male EmunaHealer. However, if you are a woman looking for EmunaHealing for your husband or another male family member, it is recommended to turn to the Rebbetzin with the problems, so she may aim to guide you to help them.

What is uniquely Jewish about EmunaHealing as a modality for spiritual energy healing?

What is uniquely Jewish about EmunaHealing as a modality for spiritual energy healing?
EmunaHealing is the modality of spiritual Jewish energy healing through Torah sources, tefilah and accessing Hashem’s light. EmunaHealing is based on the Torah, Kabbalah, Jewish mysticism and Chassidut. The main tenet of EmunaHealing is derived from the Kabbalistic approach mentioned in the Zohar, that distinguishes between אור (ohr) – “light” and קליפה (klipa) – “husk.” Rather than referring to universal energy or to a higher power, EmunaHealing recognizes the Oneness of Hashem as the source of all light and healing. The Kabbalistic approach to healing is to recognize that the root of every ailment and difficulty in life is caused by separation from the light of the One and only G-d. As Jews, we acknowledge that all healing comes from Hashem. As Jewish healers, we aim to connect with Hashem as the source of Jewish healing energy, and to be a vessel for Hashem’s healing light. EmunaHealing facilitates healing by removing the klipot that separate us from Hashem, through tefilah, which is essential both in Jewish practice and EmunaHealing.

How do I know if EmunaHealing is kosher?

How do I know that EmunaHealing is Kosher?
Spiritual healing was the main healing practiced during Biblical times. Yet, many religious Jews who have had experience with present-day energy healing are concerned that these modalities are not based on Torah, and therefore, may not be spiritually pure. In Jewish spiritual healing, it is essential that only kosher methods be practiced, such as verbal and non-verbal tefilah to Hashem, and that the EmunaHealer is yirei shamayim (G-d-fearing). This way, we ensure that the spiritual energy which is accessed is derived directly from the purest, holy source of Hashem’s light, and not G-d forbid from the impurity of the sitra achra (other side) – the side of darkness.

EmunaHealing has been developed from a spiritual healing system originally called “The Eight Sense,” conceived by the Feldmans in Ramat Beit Shemesh, Israel. They decided to purify alternative energy healing from its non-Jewish elements and to create a Torah/Emunah based system of energy healing, channeling Hashem’s life-giving power.

EmunaHealing is based on Torah sources and Torah based tefilot, and the practitioners adhere strictly to Halacha (code of the Jewish law). This system of spiritual healing is endorsed by Rabbi Berkowitz of Aish HaTorah. Rebbetzin Neustadt, the daughter of Rabbi Ezrial Tauber, said about EmunaHealing, “This is the healing of the Geulah!”
