Heschel: A Modern Prophet & His Interpretation of Biblical Prophets

JCC of Northern Virginia

Dates: Every Tuesday, February 22, 2011 - March 15, 2011
Time: 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
Speaker: John Rybicki

John Rybicki is a noted lecturer at various locations in and around Virginia.

Abraham Heschel was a 20th century Jewish religious philosopher.  During his life, he came to the conclusion that the god of the philosophers was not the God of the Hebrew scriptures. Heschel’s understanding of God was based on a "theology of pathos," in which God is a god of pathos, "revealed in a personal and intimate relation to the world ...  He is also moved and affected by what happens in the world and reacts accordingly."

Heschel’s book, The Prophets, is a fascinating exploration of a God of emotion - love and anger and compassion and chastisement.
