Avivah Zornberg: Axe for the Frozen Sea Within Us - Law and Violence on Friday, May 13th, 2016.

Friday, May 13, 2016 - 9:00am


After the Revelation at Sinai, civil laws are given – many of them in the form of short narratives that describe how the violence of human aggression is to be met by the violence of the law. We will explore midrashic, hassidic and psychoanalytic sources that deal with the problem of integrating aggression and empathy.

Remembering my Father Abraham Joshua Heschel: An Interview With Susannah Heschel 4/11/16

Monday, April 11, 2016 - 5:00pm


Join us for an interview with Susannah Heschel in which she will reflect upon the life and legacy of her father, Abraham Joshua Heschel. Rabbi Heschel (1907-1972) was a prolific scholar, philosopher, and civil rights activist who worked closely with Martin Luther King Jr.  Heschel's writings on ethics, theology, revelation and law are perhaps the most formative contributions to Jewish thought in the twentieth century.
