The inaugural Herzstein lecture with Rabbi Roy Walter.
Abraham Joshua Heschel's life exemplified his belief that the relationship between God and humanity was at the heart of moral living. His life, along with his depth of learning, remarkable insight, graceful style of writing and universal message make him one of the most widely read 20th century philosophers. The lecture will explore why his message continues to live into the 21st century and remains worthy of study.
Rabbi Roy A. Walter has been Senior Rabbi at Congregation Emanu El since 1978. He went to Emanu El following his ordination from Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion in 1970. He is an adjunct faculty member at UST, where he holds the position of Herzstein lecturer. A native of Memphis, Rabbi Walter received a Bachelor of Arts from Tulane University and Bachelor's and Master's degrees in Hebrew Letters, as well as a Doctor of Divinity degree from HUC-JIR in Cincinnati.
