The Chosen: Abraham Joshua Heschel (2)

One more on Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel:
When a neo-Nazi group called the National Socialist Movement volunteered last year to clean a Missouri highway, and get official recognition for it in the form of an Adopt-a-Highway sign, state officials felt powerless to refuse. So they took a rather clever tack.
Officials are renaming the stretch of highway near Springfield that the organization cleans after Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel, who fled Nazi Germany and became a prominent Jewish theologian and civil rights advocate in the United States.
I'd like to see a large sign, depicting Heschel proudly with his prominent beard at the entrance of the highway.
