Abraham Joshua Heschel: The Call of Transcendence

Thursday, December 05, 2013

7:30 PM

Off Campus Event

Location: Hebrew College, Alumni Dining Hall

imageRabbi Shai Held, co-founder of Mechon Hadar, discusses his new book on Abraham Joshua Heschel (1907-1972), the prolific scholar, impassioned theologian, and prominent activist who participated in the civil rights movement and the campaign against the Vietnam War.

Heschel has been hailed as a hero, honored as a visionary and endlessly quoted as a devotional writer. In Abraham Joshua Heschel: The Call of Transcendence (Indiana University Press, 2013), Held elicits the overarching themes and unity of Heschel’s incisive and insightful thought, putting Heschel in dialogue with contemporary Jewish thinkers, Christian theologians, devotional writers, and philosophers of religion.

Event is free, but registration is required.
