Max on Heschel

Max Ticktin, along with his wife Esther, has been the heart and soul of Fabrangen since arriving in Washington in 1972, a year after Fabrangen started. Max was ordained by the Jewish Theological Seminary in 1947 and holds a masters in Hebrew literature. For nearly 30 years, he shaped the Hillel movement at the University of Wisconsin and the University of Chicago, focusing particularly on social justice causes. He is also a pioneer in the Havurah and Jewish Renewal movement, creating the "Upstairs Minyan" at the University of Chicago.
In January 2013, Dr. Marsha Rozenblit, a noted historian and longtime Fabrangen member, sat down with Max at his home to discuss the legacy of Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel, a few weeks past Heschel's 40th yahrtzeit. More . . .
