Cultivating Trust: Exploring the Writings of Etty Hillesum

Hosted By: Valley Beit Midrash

Watch the recording of this session here:

In this time of pandemic and social disruption, is it wise or naive for us to trust? We’ll explore the experience of trust by looking at the writings of Etty Hillesum, a Dutch woman in her late twenties living in Nazi-occupied Amsterdam.

Etty’s journals and letters have been called “the most spiritually significant documents of our age.” Who was this young woman and what is the impact of her writings in our Jewish communities today? Together, we will examine what gets in the way of trust and how to cultivate it, even in the direst of circumstances.
