The story on Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel was a wonderful reminder of what this extraordinary man did in the world. While his work with his clergy brother Dr. Martin Luther King is fairly well known, he and his other good works cannot be spoken of enough. I was happy to learn even more. I have no one moment of inspiration to attach to Rabbi Heschel, rather I see him as an evergreen beacon of moral authority,courage,humanity,and faith. He was that rare voice that is both fierce and loving,challenging and caring and speaks across religions and beliefs -- and does so through the rich traditions of Judaism. Current religious and world leaders -- and all of us -- still have much to learn from this great man.
