Imagining Heschel
Selections from a play

By Colin Greer 

Adapted and Directed by David Y. Chack


Abraham Joshua Heschel escaped the Holocaust and lived in the US during the 1960s where he saw the rise of the Civil Rights Movement, the

beginnings of the Feminist Movement, the growing awareness of the horrors of the Holocaust, the Free Soviet Jewry Movement and urban poverty reaching epic proportions. This play imagines Heschel both in friendship and in conflict with Catholic leaders during Vatican 2, and a young African American trying to make sense of his identity and his times.
