Abraham Joshua Heschel Reading and Discussion Group
This fourth year of the "Abraham Joshua Heschel Reading and Discussion Group," we will be reading selections from Moral Grandeur and Spiritual Audacity, a collection of his essays. The title of this book was taken from a "telegram" addressed to President John F. Kennedy in 1963. While tweets have replaced telegrams, Abraham Heschel's writings help us to better understand the relationship between our religious lives and our political challenges that confront us today.
Fifty years ago, on the evening of March 25, Abraham Heschel introduced Martin Luther King, Jr. to the sixty-eighth convention of the Rabbinical Assembly. The A.J. Heschel book group will read parts of the transcript of what was said and discuss its pertinence to our lives today.
