A solo performance portraying Abraham Joshua Heschel
Rabbi Prof. Heschel's inspiring life story and character is made into a fascinating show. The play, an original production commissioned by the World Zionist Organization to inaugurated events marking the 50th anniversary of the death of Abraham Joshua Heschel - one of the most important Jewish thinkers of modern times.
The solo performance of, “Heschel’s Passover Eve” meets Rabbi Dr. Abraham Joshua Heschel a few days before the Seder to which he invited his friend and traveling companion, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr, in April 1968.
The preparations for Seder night infuse the Jewish "Festival of Freedom" with universal meaning and link the call, "Let My People Go," to the struggle for human rights, social activism, the need for Tikun Olam, the relevance of Jewish tradition, Zionism, and Jewish peoplehood for each one of us.
