Event Series (See All)
This course will explore Buber’s and Heschel’s key theological teachings.
Martin Buber is best-known for his book I and Thou, which focuses on how people relate to the world and his Tales of the Hasidim. For Buber, our relationship with the Divine and with each other should be I-Thou rather than I-It relationships.
Abraham Joshua Heschel most influential works include Man is Not Alone; God in Search of Man; The Sabbath; and The Prophets. Heschel explores the ways Judaism allows us to encounter the ineffable with the “radical amazement” experienced in the “presence of the Divine.” Heschel was a great champions of the Civil Rights Movement; marching to Selma with Martin Luther King, he said, “my feet were praying.”
