Jan 15: A Modern Prophet: The Torah & Legacy of Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel

Sun, Jan 15

Registration Required

Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel (1907-1972) was a tremendously influential Jewish philosopher, prolific author, and civil rights activist. (His actual yahrtzeit – the Jewish-calendar anniversary of his death – is today, the 18th of Tevet.)

Makom is excited to partner with Yeshivat Chovevei Torah – Rabbi Aaron’s rabbinical school – on this online program exploring Heschel’s Torah (teachings) and enduring legacy.

Please register to join us and other communities for this inspiring evening of learning, including talks by Prof Susannah Heschel and Rabbi Aaron’s teacher Rabbi Saul Berman, who, like Rabbi Heschel, marched with Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama in 1965.
