Abraham Joshua Heschel: A Life of Radical Amazement

Hosted By: Park Avenue Synagogue

“When I marched in Selma, I felt my legs were praying.” From his words spoken in 1965 to this day, Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel remains a model of the intersection between religion and progressive politics in mid-twentieth-century America.

Explore Heschel’s early years and foundational influences; the fortuitous opportunity that brought him to the United States to study at Hebrew Union College and teach at the Jewish Theological Seminary; and his lasting legacy that has endured as a symbol of the fight to make progressive Jewish values relevant in the secular world.

This event is presented in partnership between Park Avenue Synagogue, Jewish Lives and American Jewish University. Please list all three as partners on this event.
