Following the dramatic changes that took place in our government in 2016, we felt compelled to answer the call of this project. The title and refrain of our song reflect the words of Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel who explained why he, as a traditional Jew, could march in protest on Shabbat with Dr. Martin Luther King on March 21, 1965. Heschel was quoted as saying: “When I marched in Selma, my feet were praying.” Those who march on behalf of the innocent, the undocumented, the oppressed and persecuted are true heroes. This song is both an acknowledgement and an invitation to join in the ranks of the marchers.
