Description

CBE Brotherhood-Sisterhood proudly presents our first speaker of the 2017-2018 year, the distinguished Susannah Heschel, daughter of Abraham Joshua Heschel who walked with Martin Luther King, Jr. during the Selma Freedom March.

"The child of a famous theologian who helped drive the American Civil Rights movement, our professor continues his legacy by challenging students’ perceptions of orthodoxy. She is considered one of the foremost scholars on the founder of Reform Judaism, Abraham Geiger, and has written authoritatively on Christianity in Nazi Germany and Jewish–Muslim relations. To list her honors and achievements would exceed the present word limit, but it should suffice to note that she has sat on the World Zionist Congress and received four honorary doctorates. Our professor, the chair of the Jewish Studies Program and the Eli Black professor of Jewish Studies, is Susannah Heschel. The Review sat down with Heschel to understand what it is that makes am outstanding Dartmouth professor." The Dartmouth Review February 17, 2016
