Now, perhaps more than any other time in our lives, the teachings of our namesake Rabbi A. J. Heschel inspire us to view the world around us with a sense of awe and wonder. We are excited to launch our Awe and Wonder Community Photography project. We encourage you to capture moments of awe and wonder in your own lives, and to send us photographs by emailing or post them using the hashtag #heschelaweandwonder.
