Dr. Martin Luther King's "I Have a Dream"
Hillel offers a special edition of Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s “I have a Dream Speech” showing its Biblical references and Jewish parallels, as well as an accompanying study guide. The text study is presented as a special Sugya - text study in the tradition of Talmud. This file is optimized for printing on 11" x 17" paper, but is legible on regular letter-size paper.
The material was prepared by Hillel’s Meyerhoff Center for Jewish Learning Director Rabbi Avi Weinstein for the 2001 Charlotte and Jack J. Spitzer B'nai B'rith Hillel Forum on Public Policy. Participants in the event visited the Lincoln Memorial where they discussed the speech and Dr. King's legacy.
