Abraham Joshua Heschel: Piety & Politics

Hosted By: The Siegal Lifelong Learning Program at Case Western Reserve University

Abraham Joshua Heschel was one of the most compelling Jewish theologians of the 20th century. Known for his beautiful prose, he has influenced generations of Jews and their spiritual leaders through his writing, his teaching, and his personal example. Heschel is also widely admired for his vocal political activism against racism and the war in Vietnam, to which he devoted much of his time during the 1960s. What is the deeper philosophical and spiritual connection between Heschel’s philosophy of Judaism, his analysis of Jewish piety and his political commitments? How can religious education cultivate moral sensitivity? And how should religious leaders speak to moral concerns of their own time?
