Eboo Patel – Interfaith Leadership on America’s Sacred Ground
Abraham Joshua Heschel and a 21st Century Interfaith Vision

Wed, 6 Feb, 2013 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Eboo Patel Lecture Series

In the second of his three lectures on interfaith cooperation, Distinguished Visiting Guest Lecturer Dr. Eboo Patel, Founder and President of Interfaith Youth Core, will speak about the interfaith vision of Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel and its relevance for the 21st century. Rabbi Heschel was one of the great Jewish and interfaith figures of the 20th century, writing landmark works in Jewish thought, playing a key role in both the civil rights and anti-war movement, and advising Catholic leaders as part of Vatican II. In this lecture, Dr. Patel will consider how Rabbi Heschel’s vision of a God-inspired, justice-focused interfaith cooperation should influence a historical moment marked by the move away from religion of large segments of young people and the ongoing relevance of high-profile religious extremism.

We strongly encourage attendees and their guests to arrive early so that we may manage our space more effectively. The doors will open 45 minutes before the start of the event.
