Abraham Joshua Heschel

Rabbi Shai Held

Arnold Eisen Rabbi Shai Held

Shai Held's work focuses on the idea of self-transcendence, or the movement from self-centeredness to God-centeredness, in Heschel's work. He puts Heschel into dialogue with contemporary Jewish thinkers, Christian theologians, devotional writers, and philosophers of religion. Join us for this illuminating discussion of Heschel's thought and what it can mean for us today. This conversation between JTS Chanceller Arnold Eisen took place in JTS.
