Heschel’s Spiritual Humanism: Jewish Education for the 21st Century

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel left us a legacy of words and actions that remain
unique and unparalleled in our times.  This session will share aspects of his 
biography, a critical collection of his philosophy and excerpts from one of only two 
recorded video interviews with Heschel himself.  Developed by the presenter as a 
philosophical approach to Jewish education, the session will open a door to a highly 
humanistic and spiritually sensitive approach to the creation of educational settings 
so often missing from our contemporary schools.

Made possible by funds from The Covenant Foundation.
