About the Book

Perhaps best known by most Americans for his headline-making participation in the 1965 Selma, Alabama demonstration alongside the Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr., Heschel was also an extraordinary Jewish educator and the author of nearly two dozen books.

He inspired millions of Jews and non-Jews alike throughout the world with his writings and his campaigns for social causes.

Ages 9-12

Praise

"Heschel's journey of self-discovery, flight from the Nazis, and eventual leadership in the United States and around the world is told with breath-taking ease, simplicity, a touch of youthful familiarity, and a distinct sense of awe . . . [this] is a tiny, inspiring introduction to the man and his teachings."—Ottawa Jewish Bulletin
