God’s Search for the Human with Rev. David Robb

God’s Search for the Human: The Spiritual Audacity of Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel
with Rev. David Robb

On this 50th anniversary of the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., we also recall the theological vision he shared with his dear friend Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel, a vision that compelled

both men to become activists in the struggle against racism and to provide impassioned religious opposition to this country’s long engagement in the Vietnam War. Heschel, born and raised in the Hasidic tradition in Poland, later emigrated to the United States and became a public intellectual and provocative leader in 1960's America on the issues of race, war, and interreligious encounter. Deeply influenced by the prophetic tradition of Judaism, both he and King drew upon that tradition to guide their moral trajectory. In this two-part series we will focus attention on the theological roots that united them in a common ethical commitment to the claims of justice.

Rev. David Robb is Assistant Minister for Adult Education and Scholar-In-Residence at All Souls. He formerly taught as a member of the Theology Department at Georgetown University, and in the Religious Studies Department at Connecticut College where he also served as Chaplain for 14 years. A graduate of Union Theological Seminary and of the Blanton-Peale Graduate Institute, Mr. Robb also maintains a practice in psychotherapy and pastoral counseling in New York City.
