Emunaroma is probably here for another two months, or so, so please head over to rivkalevy.com and bookmark the site, to make sure you can still find the posts once Emunaroma disappears.
In the meantime, here's the latest posts:

I had a request from an old friend to stick the 'can yoga really be kosher?' special report back up, so I have. And here's some other things for your delight and delectation:

Remembering Ori Ansbacher
The latest posts - although from what I can see, more and more people are leaving the internet i droves. And that's a great sign! It means that good things are just around the corner and more and more of us are picking that up...
Is it just me, or are we all completely exhausted the moment, spiritually?
Anyway, here's the latest batch of articles. I'm still taking it easy at the moment, and spending more time writing books than blog posts. Hopefully this is just the down before the up.

And I also just wanted to bring you a snippet of a recent post by Daisy, as it really summed up nicely how the Rav influences people to be 'better', and more connected to God:
"I am not in any way changing my lifestyle or my appearance, I keep doing what I was doing before; it's just that my understanding, my Emunah, have changed. Now I have inspiration, I am connected to Hashem more than I have ever been. And I promise you, I DON'T worship the Rav: I just follow his advice, his writings and his appearances from a distance, whenever I get a chance. That's all.
"Doesn't it say: ASEH LECHA RAV? So I did."

Here's some more of the latest posts - I will continue posting up links twice a week or so, for the next few weeks, until more people start making it across to rivkalevy.com. What I can tell you is this: starting a completely new blog has re-energised my writing, especially on the more internal, spiritual front.
Baruch Hashem! Getting away from all the tired, hackneyed and self-serving 'geula blog' stuff has been such a blessing... hopefully the first of many.
