What might be considered deceptive advertising stems from chronic forgetfulness. My topic will not be, as previously announced, "Martin Buber, Alive in Dayton." Rather I'd like very much to introduce you to a Jewish religious thinker who was first a key disciple and then a close friend and confidant of Martin Buber and at the same time very much his own person. He has had a profound influence on the way I think and have tried to conduct my life. Shemuel Hugo Bergman is his name. Outside of Israel or Europe, Bergman is not well known, including in the American Jewish community. Why am I then taking this opportunity to familiarize you with a "relative unknown"? The answer is: He has much to teach us.
