“God made so many different kinds of people.
Why would he allow only one way to serve him?”

~ Martin Buber

Martin Buber*Martin Buber

Born February 8, 1878 Vienna, Austria
Died June 13, 1965 (aged 87) Jerusalem, Israel

an Austrian-born Jewish philosopher best known for his philosophy of dialogue, a form of religious existentialism centered on the distinction between the I-Thou relationship and the I-It relationship.

In 1930 Buber became an honorary professor at the University of Frankfurt am Main, and resigned in protest from his professorship immediately after Adolf Hitler came to power in 1933. He then founded the Central Office for Jewish Adult Education, which became an increasingly important body as the German government forbade Jews to attend public education.
