The 2017 Goodman Lecture presents Dr. Susannah Heschel with "No Religion Is An Island: The Interfaith Legacy of Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel."
Susannah Heschel is the Eli Black Professor and chair of the Jewish Studies Program at Dartmouth College. She is the author of Abraham Geiger and the Jewish Jesus and The Aryan Jesus: Christian Theologians and the Bible in Nazi Germany, as well as numerous edited volumes and articles. The recipient of four honorary doctorates, she has held research grants form the Carnegie Foundation, the Ford Foundation, a Rockefeller fellowship at the National Humanities Center, and a yearlong fellowship at the Wissenschaftskolleg in Berlin.
The Goodman Lecture was endowed in 1979 by Arthur and Konstance Goodman, founders of Goodman Jewelers and parents of Mary Ann Goodman Reilly '61 and Stephanie Goodman '83 and grandparents of Kristin Reilly '91 MSW'01. The elder Goodmans were an interfaith couple who experienced both anti-Semitism and anti-Christian sentiments and wished to create a forum to advance the cause of Jewish-Christian understanding.
