A Few Words From Rabbi Craig Marantz

Shalom Chevrei,

At the URJ Biennial held recently in Chicago, we had a chance to remember one of the great social justice titans of our Reform movement, Al Vorspan. Mr. Vorspan passed away within the last year, but not before he made a huge difference as a force for good.

As we approach Martin Luther King, Jr.’s birthday, I thought we would take a moment to learn more about Mr. Vorspan, who worked closely with Dr. King. I have attached here an article from 2017 by Aron Hirt-Manheimer entitled: “What I Learned on the Barricades with Martin Luther King, Jr.: An Interview with Jewish Civil Rights Activist Albert Vorspan.”

I hope you find inspiration in this article.

May the memories of Albert Vorspan and Martin Luther King, Jr. always be for a blessing.

Make it a day of blessing and be a force for good!

Zei gezunt: Rabbi Craig Marantz
