Om författaren

Heschel received his doctorate at the Hochschule fur die Wissenschaft des Judentums in Berlin but was deported to Poland by the Nazis in 1938. He went to London in 1940 and after the war accepted a professorship in ethics and mysticism at the Jewish Theological Seminary in New York. Heschel visa mer articulated a depth theology, arguing that the divine-human encounter takes place at a deeper level than is attainable by the rational mind. Reaching out to skeptical Jews and seeking to make Judaism accessible and meaningful in the modern world, Heschel stressed the interdependence of God and humanity, and maintained that God recognizes and supports ethical human action and that humans express their faith through their actions. Heschel lived according to his word and played an active role in social change, including the civil rights movement. (Bowker Author Biography) visa färre

Kort biografi
Abraham Joshua Heschel was the youngest of six children born to an esteemed Hasidic Jewish family. After a traditional yeshiva education and studying for Orthodox rabbinical ordination, he pursued a doctorate at the University of Berlin and a liberal rabbinic ordination at the Hochschule für die Wissenschaft des Judentums, where he later taught. He joined a Yiddish poetry group and in 1933, published a volume of Yiddish poems. In 1938, he was arrested by the Gestapo and deported to Poland. He spent 10 months lecturing at Warsaw's Institute for Jewish Studies. Six weeks before the German invasion of Poland, Dr. Heschel was able to leave Warsaw for London. In 1940, Dr. Heschel emigrated to the USA and obtained a faculty position at Hebrew Union College in Cincinnati. In 1946, he married Sylvia Straus, a concert pianist, and also took up a post at the Jewish Theological Seminary of America in New York City, the main seminary of Conservative Judaism. Here he served as professor of Jewish ethics and mysticism for the rest of his life. It was his leadership in the civil rights movement that first made Dr. Heschel widely known.

Heschel's Sabbath sounds much nicer than my personal experience of it; but that's my problem, not his.

Some quotes:
"[The Sabbath] is a reality we meet rather than an empty span of time which we choose to set aside for comfort or recuperation." [p. 59]
"This is the task of men: to conquer space and sanctify time." [p. 101]
