Awe and Entrepreneurship: Heschel and the New Thing
Journalist, author, and social entrepreneur Daniel Pryfogle joins us on Tuesday, August 25, at 12 pm.
“The beginning of awe is wonder, and the beginning of wisdom is awe,” wrote the rabbi and theologian Abraham Joshua Heschel. The beginning of entrepreneurship is also awe. There is a problem to solve, but what really evokes wonder is the reality that the materials are already available for the solution. Heschel follows the prophets who see “the new thing” arising from something already present. That perspective is one of reverence — “to sense in small things the beginning of infinite significance,” as Heschel put it. This one-hour webinar will explore the richness and relevancy of Heschel’s teachings for entrepreneurs.
