Remembering Heschel: With Professor Arnold Eisen and Rabbi Shai Held

Presented by Harvard Hillel, Hadar, and JTS in Honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel was a towering theologian, activist, and longtime JTS professor who left an indelible mark on the civil rights movement, the American Jewish community, and a multitude of religious and secular leaders. This month, as we mark Heschel’s 50th yahrtzeit, join Arnold Eisen, JTS professor and chancellor emeritus, and Rabbi Shai Held, president and dean of the Hadar Institute, for a conversation reflecting on Heschel’s life and thought, including his significant alliance with Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
