Political Prophecy versus Liberation Theology: Ethical and Mystical Dimensions

Join us for a talk by Professor Susannah Heschel (Dartmouth College) examining the development of "prophecy" as a central category in Protestant and Jewish biblical scholarship over the past 200 years. Christian and Jewish theology have been at sharp odds in their understanding of prophetic speech and the prophets’ own religious experience. From the mid-19th century well into the 1920s, for example, most Protestant biblical scholars defined the prophets as "ecstatics," whereas Jewish theologians viewed the prophets as teachers of universal ethical behavior. How have these views changed as biblical scholars responded to the upheaval of the world wars and political challenges like the Civil Rights Movement? Professor Heschel will pay particular attention to the thought of Abraham Heschel and will ask what role prophets might play in religious and political circumstances in the present.

The Book Smugglers

The Book Smugglers tells the story of the courageous Jews of the “Paper Brigade,” who risked their lives to rescue thousands of rare books and manuscripts—first from the Nazis and then from the Soviets—by hiding them on their bodies, burying them in bunkers in the Vilna Ghetto, and smuggling them across borders. This new book by David Fishman has been dubbed “Monuments Men for book lovers.” It is the epic chronicle of a little-known chapter from the darkest days of Jewish history.

The event will feature remarks by David Fishman, a musical program featuring songs by Shmerke Kaczerginski, a leader of the "Paper Brigade," performed by Josh Waletzky, and commentary on the book by Aaron Lansky, Founder and President of the Yiddish Book Center, and YIVO’s Executive Director Jonathan Brent, who will also reveal how the work to rescue Jewish culture and heritage from oblivion continues to this very day with the Edward Blank YIVO Vilna Collections Project .

A free reception will follow the program. Copies of the book will be available for purchase and signing by the author.
