Rabbis for Human Rights with Rabbi Dr. Michael Marmur

Rabbi Dr. Michael Marmur is currently the Chair of the Board of Rabbis for Human Rights (RHR), an Israeli organization, active in three main areas – work within and about the Occupied Territories; work to promote social and economic justice within Israel; and activities in the fields of education and interreligious dialogue.
Members of RHR are affiliated with different denominations within the Jewish world – Orthodox, Conservative, Reform, Reconstructionist, Renewal, and Humanist. A number of their members serve in communal positions as rabbis and educators and in other capacities and are active in effecting significant change in Israel.

Dr. Marmur is the Associate Professor of Jewish Theology at HUC-JIR’s Taube Family Campus in Jerusalem. Until July 2018 he served as the Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel Provost at HUC-JIR, having previously been Dean of the Jerusalem campus. In recent years he has taught courses in Theology, Parashat Hashavuah, Homiletics, and Pluralistic Jewish Education. He has published several popular and academic articles. He is the author of Abraham Joshua Heschel and the Sources of Wonder (University of Toronto Press, 2016) and co-editor, together with David Ellenson, of American Jewish Thought Since 1934. We look forward to welcoming Rabbi Marmur and Rabbi Ellenson to Holy Blossom this fall to learn about their publication.
