Selma: an iconic site in American history and an iconic moment in Jewish history. “I felt my legs were praying.” With those words describing his experience of the Selma march of 1965, Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel, professor of Jewish ethics and mysticism at the Jewish Theological Seminary, transformed a political march into a moment of profound religiosity.
His daughter, Dr. Susannah Heschel, Dartmouth College professor of Jewish studies, will evaluate the role of Jews in the civil rights movement and the importance of that movement in American Jewish history.
