Abstract

In this essay, the author explores through anecdote and analysis how her father, Abraham Joshua Heschel, a brilliant, well-known and sometimes controversial rabbi, influenced her development and her writing on anti-Semitism, Jewish-Christian relations and feminism. She shows how her father's approach to Judaism and his voice of challenge and critique of Jewish leadership and practice is similar to her own, though her position as a woman adds perspective.
