Why do we celebrate the birthday of the Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. as a national holiday? We will revisit tales of his life & cause, along with accounts of the rabbis, attorneys & Jewish communities who supported, advised & marched in the streets with him [Rabbi Heschel foremost]. Dr. King was far more radical & impatient than the placid image of him we see today. We will also study the Biblical models for his civil disobedience, Shifra & Puah.
