Today, we carry on that legacy. In honor of Abraham Joshua Heschel's contributions to Jewish learning and the social justice imperative that defines him, Lehrhaus is excited to offer a three-part course exploring this fundamental aspect of Heschel's life and Judaism. The texts we'll focus on are Abraham Joshua Heschel: Essential Writings (Orbis, 2011) and Moral Grandeur and Spiritual Audacity (Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 1997). We will also read supplementary texts from other writers including Maimonides, Shai Held, Edward K. Kaplan, and Susannah Heschel. Sponsored and presented by Lehrhaus Judaica.
