Ways & Means Productions
 is pleased to announce the opening of: 

 at the Musée d'art et d'histoire du Judaïsme in Paris

 We are happy to announce that a 15 minute excerpt from  Praying With 
 My Legs:  The Spiritual Witness of Abraham Joshua Heschel  is now on 
 view in Paris at the  Musée d'art et d'histoire du Judaïsme .
 The video is part of a major exhibition on the biblical lawgiver Moses  entitled " Moïse, figures d'un prophète ." 

 The exhibition looks at how Moses has been viewed through the ages 
 and  interpreted through the sometimes competing lenses of different  cultures  and religions.
 In the American section of the exhibition, " Go Down, Moses: Jews and  Blacks in the  United States,"  Moses is seen through the lens of the  American civil rights movement,  with a focus on the unlikely, yet close  relationship between religious thinker and activist Abraham Joshua  Heschel and civil rights leader Martin Luther King, Jr.  Both freely 
 evoked Moses and the Exodus in their speeches and writings about the  Black American struggle for dignity and equal rights.

  The video, Abraham Joshua Heschel & Moses, is comprised of  two parts.  The first deals with Heschel's understanding of what Moses  experienced  and encountered at Mount Sinai, where, according to the  Hebrew Bible  and Jewish tradition, he received the Ten Commandments,  and indeed  the entire Torah, in a revelation from God.
 The second part of the video focuses on Heschel's relationship with Martin  Luther King, Jr., and their partnership in the civil rights movement,  centering  on a shared prophetic understanding of justice and  redemption.
 In the wake of the recent tragic events in Paris, Heschel's words about  group prejudice  and hatred resonate all the more strongly:

"God is either the father of all men or of no man."

 " There is no reverence for God without reverence for man. "

 The exhibition runs through February 21, 2016.
