Yesterday to Today: Legacies of the Civil Rights Movement
About this event
Join us for a conversation with Dr. Susannah Heschel, daughter of Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel, Repair the World national board member, Yosef Webb-Cohen and Rabbi Jessy Dressin, Executive Director of Repair the World Baltimore. The conversation will include reflections and memories by way of story about the friendship and work done between Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr and Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel. We will consider the work of civil rights and social justice in their time and the work that calls us to join in today, the way the work has changed and also the opportunity for leadership of Jews of Color in this work.
Repair the World mobilizes Jews and their communities to take action to pursue a just world, igniting a lifelong commitment to service. We believe service in support of social change is vital to a flourishing Jewish community and an inspired Jewish life. By 2030, Repair will inspire and catalyze one million acts of service towards repairing the world.
