The power of ideas
Dear Donniel- Though I only knew him through his writings and the lectures I watched through the Internet , your father touched my life deeply. David Hartman opened my eyes to the beauty and complexity of Judaism, and he taught me that it takes courage to be passionate about the ideas you hold most dear. As I pursue my studies, I am inspired by your father`s teachings to care deeply and speak fearlessly about the ideas I believe in, but to be willing to engage critically with others and listen. A brilliant man is gone, but he continues to transform the world. All the best to and your family, Lisa Nunez

Rabbi Hartman
What a beautiful commentary on an exceptional man! May he serve as a light and guide to all of us in pursuing a "godlike" path in our lives.
