One Response to Rabbi Herman Schaalman: A Dedicated Leader and Voice for Justice

  1. I worked with Rabbi Schaalman for many years as staff of the American Jewish Committee/Chicago. I am indebted to him for mentoring me in interreligious affairs and journeying with me in developing the National Workshop on Christian Jewish Relations held in Chicago in 1990. A pleasure and an honor!
