Jane Isay

Born in Connecticut in 1930, Marshall Meyer, author of You Are My Witness, began his spiritual struggle at Dartmouth, where he flirted with the idea of converting to Christianity. Before taking such a big step, he decided to plumb the depth of his Jewish heritage and was fortunate to find a great teacher, Abraham Joshua Heschel, perhaps the most influential Jewish philosopher of his time. While in Argentina, he became an outspoken critic of the Junta. He became the only non-Argentine appointed to the National Commission on Investigating the Disappeared Persons.Jane Isay is a legendary book editor and longtime congregant of Marshall Meyer.
