‘I Have A Dream’: Celebrating Dr. King’s Legacy đź–Ą


Tuesday, Jan 18, 2022
7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

“We will not be satisfied until ‘justice rolls down like waters, and righteousness like a mighty stream,'” said Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., quoting Amos in his iconic 1963 speech at the Lincoln Memorial. Join us as we celebrate Dr. King’s legacy and explore the use of Biblical references and allusions in his “I Have a Dream” speech. Led by our congregant Rabbi Neal Borovitz and Social Justice Program Associate Steven Morris, we’ll examine how Dr. King interpreted the Hebrew scriptural references and the role he saw the Prophets play in both Christian and Jewish social justice traditions.


Watch Dr. King’s  “I Have A Dream” speech here.


Every other week, Rabbi Ammi Hirsch hosts intellectually honest conversations unpacking current events through the lens of Jewish wisdom. Unbound by politics and untethered by party lines, Ammi and his expert guests discuss everything from race and antisemitism to all the other issues that keep you up at night.
