About the Course

In this new four-part course, discover the profound teachings of 'Chovot HaLevavot', an ancient text that will take us on a journey into the heart of trust in G-d. Uncover the art of cultivating trust as a skill, explore the nuances of building meaningful connections, and witness the transformative effects of trust on your life. Join us for a thoughtful exploration that goes beyond the surface, paving the way for a world where trust in G-d is not just a concept but a way of being.

Course Syllabus

Lesson 1: What is Trust?
May 16, 2024
How often are we told to “trust ourselves,” “trust in G-d,” or “trust the process”? Given the increasing prevalence of anxiety in today’s age, trust seems to be a mythical cure to many ills. But it’s increasingly difficult to know who - or how - to trust. In this first lesson, we reframe trust as a skill that can be cultivated and learned. Join us as we take our first steps into Path to Peace.
Lesson 2: Who Should You Trust?
May 23, 2024
Who doesn’t want a life filled with deep, trusting relationships? Yet so often, we wind up trusting the wrong people or, worse, shutting ourselves off from others all together. In this second lesson we learn about the conditions necessary for building trust with other people and with G-d. Empathy, kindness, and honesty are just a few. Tune in to catch the rest.
Lesson 3: How Does Trust Work?
May 30, 2024
Building a trusting relationship isn’t just about finding someone who is trustworthy to rely on. It’s an ongoing process that requires maintenance and effort. In this lesson we learn about the work of trusting, and the benefits of engaging in that labor.
Lesson 4: Toward a More Trusting Tomorrow
June 6, 2024
Putting trust at the heart of our relationships - with ourselves, with one another, and with G-d - is the first step to a healthier and kinder society. For our final installment of Path to Peace we reflect on the lessons we’ve learned on our journey through Chovos HaLevavos and consider what a more trusting world might look like.

  • This was an amazing course and well done. I was hesitate at first about the ability to "connect" with the subject and and amazed how my life focus has changed after just 4 weeks. Thank you Rabbi Stein and Chabad.org Courses. Shabbat Shalom.
