His English translation of Rabbi Shalom Arush's international bestseller The Garden of Emuna has sold over a million copies. Rabbi Brody is also a musical composer; his Calming Waters is a collection of his original relaxing instrumental melodies and Judean Dream is an album of "Land-of-Israel" music recorded together with Guy Tzvi Mintz and Yosef Karduner. Rabbi Brody spends considerable time traveling around the world spreading the light of emuna.
Cheshvan 9, 5773, 10/25/2012
Hashem commands Abraham to get up and traverse the Land of Israel by foot, from north to south and from east to west. Let's see why:
Tishrei 11, 5773, 9/27/2012
On Yom Kippur, Iran's Achmedinejad once again repeated his threat to annihilate Israel. Predictably, less than a handful of nations voiced other than perfunctory luke-warm objections. As the Gemara teaches us, we have no one to depend on but our Father in Heaven.
Most suitably, this week's Torah portion - Haazinu - warns that our only chance of survival in the Land of Israel is by clinging to our roots.
The Sycamore tree is a living example of what the Torah's talking about; join me for a 5-minute boost of emuna...
Elul 24, 5772, 9/11/2012
I must humbly disagree with the doomsday prophets. Sure, Israel suffers from big problems and major threats. But it's heaven for your soul. The fact is that here, more and more people are quietly getting closer to Hashem. In Israel, a beautifully quiet spiritual revolution is taking place. Entire communities of emuna-oriented Jews are mushrooming in places that for years never had a synagogue or a Torah scroll. Yavniel, Carmiel, and Maalot are three examples. Folks there aren't yelling at social protest demonstrations because they're talking to Hashem. Many of our good friends in the USA and Canada have made Aliya recently. I urged those who sought my advice to consider places other than Ramat Bet Shemesh and Har Nof. I sent them to Maalot, to Katzrin, and to Yerucham, where they could buy nice apartments for a song, not worry where the kids are playing and breathe clean air. I've heard no complaints, only expressions of how happy they are to be here. I firmly believe that 5773 will be a wonderful year for the Jewish people in Israel, despite the threats.

Iran - strike or not?
According to the media, not only is it a race of time, but time is running out.
According to the media, Israel's Prime Minister and Defense Minister are in the final stages of planning an attack on Iran.
According to the media, the President of the United States and his Cabinet are doing everything in their power to discourage/sabotage Israel's plans.
Either way, don't be upset. The media and the politicians on both sides of the ocean don't decide.
Each passing day brings Iran closer to a nuclear warhead. Only the blind and the naive would think otherwise. Despite international sanctions, the Iranian centrifuges are working 24/7 purifying uranium and producing nuclear weapons-grade fuel.
Hey lady, if you continue dressing the way you do, you are creating the sword which will "catch you dead."
With our strengthened personal holiness, let Tehran worry; we here will sleep like babies, for The Guardian of Israel shall never slumber. G-d bless always.
