Standing Together Against Racism: Building Our Common Heritage

Event has passed!

Nearly 50 years ago, Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel developed a strong friendship and worked together in service to social justice.

Sunday, their children – Dr. Bernice A. King and Dr. Susannah Heschel – will share their own story and how the work of Dr. King and Rabbi Heschel can continue to guide us all in working to build community and stand against racism.

We look forward to Dr. King and Dr. Heschel weaving the story of their fathers’ friendship and impact on social justice, and Rabbi Funnye, as an African American rabbi will guide the conversation and reflect on with how their legacy has affected Black-Jewish relations today with positive resolve for the future. We know this meeting will provide a singularly inspiring, real moment of conciliation and hope.

The event is free, virtual, and open to anyone nationwide, and you can register here
