Darkness shall cover the earth

כִּי הִנֵּה הַחֹשֶׁךְ יְכַסֶּה אֶרֶץ וַעֲרָפֶל לְאֻמִּים וְעָלַיִךְ יִזְרַח הֹ וּכְבוֹדוֹ עָלַיִךְ יֵרָאֶה

R’ Yerucham writes that holding on to Emuna in times of darkness elevates a person more than the highest levels of serving Hashem or the greatest Torah knowledge. Emuna is the purpose of the world.

    While darkness is usually used as a metaphor for hard times, just a few short weeks ago, darkness was literal. People were without electricity for a long time. The light of Emuna was needed to help them stay bsimcha and positive thorughout the ordeal.
