weekly interactive course
$120

Abraham Joshua Heschel and Martin Luther King met in the early 1960’s and established a friendship based on shared values and mutual respect between their Jewish and Christian traditions. Through our study, we will pursue several key biographical, theological, and political questions:

  • How did each emerge as a public figure?
  • What were their understandings of the relationship between religion and American democracy?
  • How did they weave together ritual and ethics concerns?
  • Can we apply lessons from their interreligious, cross-cultural, and interracial efforts to oppose bigotry and hatred today?

By studying Heschel and King together, we will have the opportunity to learn by way of comparison and contrast—including the impact each had on the other—thus offering us two intriguing models of “spirituality and social justice.”

This is a 5-week interactive course; the cost is $120. Register here.
