Humans of Hebrew College Caring for the “Other”

By Wendy Linden

Rabbi Suzanne Schwartz Jacobson

“In 2002, I discovered the philosophy of Emmanuel Levinas, and it changed my life. He taught me that being a human being means having a radical and never-ending responsibility to see and care for the Other. I take his philosophy with me wherever I go — the classroom, the bima, the pastoral moment, the dinner table.”  #HumansHC
