An Interfaith Perspective

Rabbi Micah Lapidus first encountered Heschel as a young learner at Los Angeles Hebrew High School. Melvin Myles first encountered Heschel through Ebenezer Baptist Church’s partnership with The Temple in Atlanta.

Heschel is an inspiration in many ways. Most relevant here is that he is the inspiration for the composition “Praying with our Feet,” written by Rabbi Micah Lapidus and performed by Lapidus and Melvin Myles, often accompanied by the Ebenezer Baptist Church and Temple choirs.

He imbued in us a sense of wonder and a commitment to justice.
